by Atiqullah Bana

I am from the foods qably pala and tika kabab
I am from many good friends who help me during the hard days of my life, and this is my greatest success
I am from my father always telling me to be a servant of the people, and my mother always insisting that people should respect their teachers like their mother
The people in Afghanistan have very big hearts, because there are many problems around and in our country
We have constantly been invaded by neighboring countries
There has been no joy in the life of Afghan people for forty years
Today the doors of our schools are closed for girls who can now neither study nor work
We have been held hostage by terrorists
