How long will you remain a boy?
Dawns must end.
Behold the angels of old age.

Shake off temporal things then
the way a bird shakes off 
the night dew.
Dart like a swallow
from the raging ocean

of daily events
and pursue the Lord
in the intimate company
of souls flowing
into His virtue.

Occasionally you slip my mind and I get some relief from your memory. Then, you resurface and the sadness mixed with joy fills me again. The guilt I feel for the slip causes more pain, but the joy of your memory satisfies the guilt. There is no end to this vicious circle; only an awareness that allows me to be at peace with both.

The sound of bangles rattle the ground.
Lockets explode and make an eerie sound.
They have killed another woman-
for going to the market is not allowed.
The Taliban out spilling blood like rabbit hounds. 

Shabana danced and paraded around.
Her earrings lie there on her body,
where she was found. 
Benazir with her beautiful jewels and crown,
was viciously and violently struck down.
Her speech to defeat the evil and bring them down-
left her a target and in her blood she drowned.

More and more are dying in public crowds.
Their sickness spreading over the world-
like a black cloud.
So if you hear bangles drop to the ground-
take heed like Malala warned:
Freedom is being stripped and bangles,
lockets, and earrings are not allowed!

If you want to resolve a dispute or come out from conflict, the very first thing is to speak the truth. If you have a headache and tell the doctor you have a stomach ache, how can the doctor help? You must speak the truth. The truth will abolish fear. ~I Am Malala
