Advocate Banoo

Husn Ban Ghazanfar

Go ahead and break down all those doors,
closed in front of you. Remove all customs
that harm women in our society. Join
the sun’s light and smile in the face of all sadness.

Because She Is a Girl

No one thinks her long skirt is clean enough to kneel and pray on.
But her scarf is clear as a virgin sky.

How to Heal the World

When you are not with me
I say Allah Hafiz to everyone.
Without you, my beloved, I am silent, without laughter or speech.

Teach the World

Mother of mine, you can be a spokeswoman for peace,
Because you are love, honesty, and sentiment.

My Friend

My friend is like a mountain, high and quiet

She Is Me

Silent and immolated
by my society’s bad customs,
I believe in love, forgiveness, loyalty.

The Life Sides

What is the nature of life?
Someone is happy and laughs
But another cries and is full of sadness

The Passenger Girl

If someone asks about her
You should answer:
“The passenger girl, she came alone and she went alone too.”

My Tears

My tears encourage me to continue my life
With power and energy.
They bear my soul and console me.
