To the sister, I have never met…

With a broken heart and deep hope I had penned a few lines on the Afghan crisis. 
Sharing the same…

You are a breathing living being
Just like me or any other woman
Sitting at my home
I hear the gunfire rang out
Though a helpless spectator
I feel a numbing pain

To the sister, I have never met

The situation in your country turns volatile
For every inhabitant, all the more for women
People stranded unable to leave
Scrambling to get to a safer place
I feel my heartache

To the sister, I have never met

As the present mirrors a harrowing past
I fear the return of dark days
As I see all these events unfold
My freedom seems a privilege
And my issues appear so small

To the sister, I have never met

As the war continues to rage
I do sincerely pray and hope
May the cracks heal soon
Let there be peace and light
let there be peace and light
let there be peace and light…
