The Afghani Girl

A young girl,


Her face hidden beneath scarves,



Watches her world fall apart.



A boy throwing


Jagged stones at his sister,



No respect left for her.


Battle noises in


The distance,



Men meeting God or Allah.



Her mother falls


To her knees,



Begging her husband not to strike her.


And the girl,


Wrapped in scarves watches,



And she listens, as her life leaks from her eyes.

the last line is a refreshing change from just saying "she cried" and it gives a deeper meaning to the poem... read some of mine?
