My Heart Is Bleeding

 

My heart is bleeding

I can’t believe this feeling

My eyes are terrified

And my ears are blocked

 

By hearing the stories

Depicting their suffering

On their rough premises

My heart is bleeding

 

My legs are wobbling

My body has snowed

This is too heavy

I’m hurt teenagers are wedding

 

They are denied rights

The moon will not shine

The stars are lost in nights

My heart is bleeding

 

It is cold learning

The day does not wake

Until the morning has come

Women and girls can’t read nor write

 

Is this their fate?

Being confined to the kitchen

It breaks my heart.
