A 20 Year old Dream

It all started with a reason, the twin towers were blown apart giving bruises to America. They decided to end this forever war giving hope to the world and innocent people of Afghanistan .

They pushed those demons, freed that land giving dreams to the people of Afghanistan. But they decided to leave ,maybe for a broader plan which we are not able to see.


Afghanistan is still a child who barely walked when….so much to say through this poetry

“They lifted me from the rubble
Of my doomed fate, a small child
Shivering with chaos around”,
My mother told my tale of hope.

A long nightmare ended ,
The reveries glowed with promise
To stay forever around,
When the Angels arrived, saved my life

I grew with those dreams ,
Limping through smoke of the past.
Freeing my motherland From
The shackles of those demons ,at last

But when it was time ,
To walk towards light,
They decided To leave
with our dreams in their heart !

Why they left us
In the hands of those demons?
Maybe there’s a reason in the darkness,
They want Us To find in time !

    This is a heart-breaking story that I’m not sure anyone can really explain.
