Rukhshana-stoning

What is justice?
Why is a 19-year-old girl stoned to death?
Why do police take no action?
Rukhshana is gone and our
Hearts cry for her
Rukhshana, I hope one day women

Change this country
Government is absent when it comes to women
Advocacy does not change it
Protesting does not end it
It happens over and over

It is time now to protect women from wrong traditions
Rukhshana was stoned because a
Girl in Afghanistan does not have a
Right to love, does not have the
Right to choose her life partner

Shall I write more?
Who will read and who will listen?
I am tired.
On Facebook I see only bad news about women in Afghanistan but
Good news about women from Afghanistan in other countries
We are the victims living here.
