Little Girl – a poem by studentasim

Share

In solidarity against the Massacre of Gaza July/August 2014

Little girl like a star
Little girl wonder who you are
Little girl I wish I could help
So far away
Tears all I dealt
What I could do
Wrote you a poem
How it will find you?
Lost your family home
Coward action from the drone
Devastated your mommy no longer here
Cried a lot. Who will wipe away your tears?
If I had power I would make your life great
Rebuild you back and give you a clean slate
My heart bleeds to know if you will grow up fine
Change the world in it’s hate, against
PAL-ES-TINE
When people die and people cheer
I could never understand
How could you be the victim in your own land?
Trust in God, do not despair.
God is good. God is fair.
You make my struggle carry on
Give me courage, write the wrong
Little girl, thank you SO MUCH
You’re a seed of narrative change
The WORLD will soon touch…

Ineffective
myself
my health
my youth
my self-control
plateau
the end
no growth
unacceptable
susceptible
flat line
despair
change?
how?
what?
where?
why?
True change means I have to let go
Principled
Rebound
Cycle
Dark
Stop
Go
No

No
Binds my soul
Break that free
At what fee!
Need to flee?!
Fight to see
Can we be?!
Silence
Till that time
Speech is earned
Worth is earned
Ground is earned
Silence
Alone
Decisions
Change course
History
No step
No peace
No gain
The pain
Milestone
Again
Still in the struggle
Ineffective…

In light of this recent article, Is Kingston (ON, Canada) racist? I will share a personal experience of trying to get my book “into” the Kingston Public Library.

Kingston Ontario Canada is like a “sacred” city for me because this is my roots in this country. A place where my father first came as a student to do his Masters in 1965 from #Pakistan.

Life is your teacher
Think
It was always about Process
As the train leaves
On it is something you own
The difference is a flash of a second
Why do you feel restricted?
Did you get back what was yours?
It could be gone forever
Think
It was always about Process…
