Malala Day


From today
Every twelfth day
Of July
United Nations say
To mark her birth day - today her sixteenth
And to commemorate the brave way
She fought away
The fearsome terror array
Alone and still does stay
Determined to pay
The women of today
A gift of self-earned empowered free independent way
With the strength of education
A teacher
A child
A book
A pen
She rose to say
Are mightier enough
To wipe out
Fanaticism
And terrorism
A teacher
A child
A book
A pen
She added
Are enablers
To usher in
Harmonious peaceful co-existence
With tolerance, love and understanding
Let the world
Learn to live
A new life
From today
Malala day
