Malala Yousafzai became the youngest ever noble laurate
By winning the Nobel peace prize,
Fighting for women’s rights in Pakistan,
Malala an excellent orator managed to soar through the skies!
One day when she was returning from school in the bus,
The evil Taliban came and heartlessly shot her,
This incident didn’t banish her dreams
On the contrary she continued to fight without fear!
On August 15 th as we celebrated our freedom
There was instability in Afghanistan
After the US decided to leave in less than 10 hours
The country and capital Kabul was taken over by the Taliban
Yes, it was the very same Taliban who shot Malala
The last they were in power, women had no right
Complete ban on music and education, restricted healthcare
Covered in burqas, women lived in fright
On hearing this alarming news,
Malala was in complete dismay and shock!
What would be the fate of the poor Afghans?
With the women locked in, unable to even go for a walk
Ironically sitting in UAE is President Ashraf Ghani
Who abandoned his countrymen and just fled…
He left his people suffering amidst terror
And wounds that bled and bled.
Afghanistan is now a hazardous sight!
If you oppose the Taliban or to speak out you dare
You can embrace heaven;
Because forever will your mouth be shut – so beware!
What been all taken away from the Afghan’s, in just one day…
Is what we take for granted: freedom to act and speak
I pray for all the young and old, for God to help them
Get through their future that looks really bleak.
I hope that Malala inspires each and every Afghan
Be it young or old, girl or boy
Not to give up on your hope and fight for your right
And one day soon together freedom we all will enjoy.
