Spoken in a whisper, it would be missed
Wisdom intertwined with dread, always echoing,
"LET US OUT OF HERE!"
A first love, transcending time.
Oh, such is a thirteen year olds dream!
To be remembered—to be seen
Forgetting the terror and running free.
Her readers instantly transported--
Deep into her dreams and nightmares:
"What adventures can be done
What if we are found?"
Barely allowing life to show,
And yet, for what avail?
A life cut short by one man's hatred.
Papers of life scattered throughout the ages.
One girl's voice, silenced in this realm,
But remains strong,
Bringing life and hope to others,
As her voice is engraved on sheets of paper.
Words etched onto another page,
Answering, pressing, pursuing,
Wishing to remove the evil
And to chase away the darkness.
Seeking for the answer,
To explain away the senseless madness.
Neighbor killing neighbor,
All because one is a Muslim and one is a Christian.
Mingling with ink and lined paper.
Hoping to survive just one more day
Just wanting to influence a world for the better.
Despite everything, I believe that people are really good at heart.
Dedicated to those who write their stories for future generations. So that we will learn from their mistakes and see they are just as human as we are.
