Sad Afghan Women

I can’t judge you
Cause I never walked in your shoes.
What I saw with my own eyes
Is what made me surprised…
They would take you, rape you, then make you
But still they would never break you.

Outside you’re happy but inside you’re sad.
You’ll show people you’re glad
But when you’re really, really mad.
The way you feel right now is not your style
But yet it’s hard to smile.

They taken girls seven and up
That even get raped or beaten up
Don’t give up cause it’s never too late…
For your hope to die and to give up faith.
