Let Me Fly

black headed gull

I would like to fly
To the highest point of the sky
Where no hurdles can stop my way

I would like to fly
With my own wings
I want to feel the pleasure of being free

Without any fear
Without any tears
I would like to fly

  1. Your three stanzas say it all, Humira. What a beautiful poem. I know there are a billion people around the world aching for this freedom, this ability to fly, to be without fear. You are speaking for them now. Please continue to write! All best, Stacy

    Dear Humira,
    That is a great poem. It is very moving. I understand how you crave freedom. Keep on working hard, you’ll soon get what you deserve to have. You speak for many women in Afghanistan and they need your help. Continue the good work.
