Choking Victim - 500 Channels
and when there is no hope, i smoke some crack i shoot some dope
I won’t become a doctor.
One day you will be sick."
Poem written by an 11 year old Afghan girl
This poem was recorded in a NYT magazine article about female underground poetry groups in Afghanistan. An amazing article about the ways in which women are using a traditional two line poetry form to express their resistance to male oppression, their feelings about love (considered blasphemous).
Yes I fucking love their poetry. I adore it. Its extremely important.
