"You won’t allow me to go to school.

Poem written by an 11 year old Afghan girl
This poem was recorded in a NYT magazine article about female underground poetry groups in Afghanistan. An amazing article about the ways in which women are using a traditional two line poetry form to express their resistance to male oppression, their feelings about love (considered blasphemous).
Spring’s lush greenery and delicate blossoms bathed in warm sunlight. You can almost hear the sap rising around you.
