Poem by Maryam, high school student, Afghanistan
It’s the feeling, which takes me beyond this world,
It knows no boundaries,
It crosses from the rivers of sorrow,
It crosses from the waves of joy,
It’s the wind of thoughts,
It’s the field of inspirations,
It’s the endless feelings of a poet,
It’s the magic which makes you shine brighter the closer it gets to you,
It’s the inspiration, which makes you feel what others suffer from,
It’s the blessing, which pictures them into little sparkles.
It’s the world of saving someone’s life,
Saving your life,
Finally, it’s the safest place for my feelings,
For a girl’s heart is a deep ocean of secrets.
