As surely as the sun raises its head, we women are blessed.
Once upon a time, I walked on the clouds, talked
to the moon, listened to the stars, laughed with the sun,
jumped up and down with the rain drops
into a deep ocean
My mother told me stories
When I was four
Told me that the prince took the princess’s hands
And led her to the castle
Being a girl is the most amazing experience in the world.
Sometimes it couldn’t be easier, other times it couldn’t be more difficult.
You prepared my books, polished my shoes.
You shook my teacher’s hand and told her to take care of me.
History is changed by the small actions of ordinary people. —Zahra A.
