Poem For Her Words

Dear fellow travellers ๐Ÿ™‚

Today, after school, as I was fooling around on FB, I fell upon a post on Malala’s page. It was an open letter that she read out loud to the still kidnapped girls in Nigeria. First time that she speaks publicly since December, and so I am happy that she has broken her silence, even if hearing her read her letter is a very heavy and sad ordeal. One year later, and they are still gone, but one year later, and she still carries them with her.

So, these are the words that came to my mind once I had finished listening to her words.

“When she speaks, the whole world stops,
and even the stars stand still to listen,

But why?
Why does the universe pause, just to hear her words?

Because, just like light is in perfect submission,
to the glow of the sun,
she is in perfect submission,
to the will of Allah,

Like the light serves and loves all,
as a servant of the sun,
she too, serves and loves all,
as a servant of The Most Compassionate,

Like the light is at peace, knowing that it can only exist,
through the grace of the sun,
so too, is she at peace, knowing that she can only exist,
through the grace of The Source Of Peace,

Like the light carries, the mercy of the sun,
she carries, the mercy of The Most Merciful,

Like the light is at one with the sun,
she is at one, with God,

And so, this is why, when she speaks, the whole world stops,
and even the stars,
stand still,
to listen”
