An Ode to Malala


Words more powerful than the weapons
cutting through her innocence.
A right not a privilege
lost in her surrounds.

The power she wields
in unprecedented glory.
Bravery always triumphs
the misery of those before.

A young voice is deafening
burning the book of norms.
The wounds will heal
and from the scars
a new school is born.
