Malala Yousafzai has spoken up for the education and empowerment of girls and women everywhere, but what has really changed?

Malala Yousafzai has spoken up for the education and empowerment of girls and women everywhere, but what has really changed?

When Malala said,

books and pens are

more powerful than guns,

I felt nothing.

Everyday, I lay my body

in darkness to find solace.

Even If my words no longer rhyme

Never miss real stories from India's women.

Register Now

I want the stillness in my eyes

to stop the seconds, and

the sunlight from

the sun.

Dear Malala, not to hate

but what to inflict, if I want to

stop my mind.

I couldn’t be brave but to sit

and afraid,

of a man

Who crushes my chest every night.

He taught me,

the ramifications of

the cerebrum, and

I ended up losing one.

I can pick a knife

and carve the words like ‘subtle’

because my body isn’t one.

It is evolving, a body of Chimera

a fiery breath, to make him

Suffocate and die.

I’m sorry Malala,

I’m not valiant with a book

because he never bestow-me-one.
