Guardian Angel

Guardian Angel

Your face is a shining star.
You lighten my darkest nights, are rain in the driest deserts.
In my saddest times, your smile makes me delight.

Lost

Lost

Caught in obstacles like chains,
the poor girl tries to figure out what’s next.
She struggles to see the right path.

I Cry

I Cry

You know, when we pass by
We forget to smile
We act as blind, deaf and mute
Is it killing to say hi?

Beauty

Beauty

To me beauty exists everywhere around us, in everything. Beauty needs to be felt, it needs to be understood by the heart and analyzed by the mind.

The Chess Game

The Chess Game

At the library, I looked aimlessly at the shelves. I didn’t need a book. My mind was turning the pages of my own life’s book. I tried to relax as I sat at a table. My thoughts went back to ten years ago. I am a little girl, wearing black pants with a long colorful dress. My long black scarf hangs around my neck instead of covering my hair.

No One…

No One…

No one knows how it feels to be so sad
No one knows how it hurts to live so alone
To walk on a dark path

Victim of Male Domination

Victim of Male Domination

I am an Afghan woman, a victim of male domination / I am a woman, a survivor in flames of segregation / My voice is choked down in my throat / My thoughts are frozen, disabled to tell the truth
