Malala-Yousafzai-03

 

 

 

 

 

 

I AM MALALA –I’ll rise high

Through the broken windows I see
Reptiles of discrimination;
Terrors multiplying;
A choking cloud of smoke; and
free birds in sheer silence.

How can we tolerate!
Threads of rainbow being torn apart;
Dirty hands spilling dust on dawn;
Black masks hindering the light of education and
Guns and Bullets safeguarding evil deeds!

‘YOU’ can numb me now;
I may die at this point in time,
but I will gush forth through the tides and
Shall always stand as a symbol of courage.

Oh My Countrymen!
Let us light the lamps together;
Let boats of knowledge sail on every ocean;
Let every wings get a sky; and
Let we all sing every second-
Yes! I AM MALALA-I’ll rise high.
