Treasure Island

Yasmeen Khan


A Tribal Girl


A beaming ray from one eye
The other behind an awning, smile
Wishes, desires born and die
And upon their graves falls a tear
She moves and walks in a born fear

Waiting for Fate for flowers or thorns
That she’s to walk on all life long
The soul finds bliss or remains forlorn
She is a village girl with no slime
Being angelic yet she’s done some crime

    A cry from the heart, a feeling caring heart
    a pain seen and felt daily....put rather offhandedly and even jauntily
    as the visuals are generated and whiz by... the effect is of a train that passes by the tribal belts of distant lands
    Lovely depiction
    enjoyed

    The lines are deeply immersive on rumination
    RE: shahzia
    Born fear, born into fear and Bourne fear it’s all the same
    You don’t have to take a long journey to identify this species.... she stands at every corner of Pakistan (Report) Reply

    ...as if you have seen a tribal girl closely: She moves and walks in a born fear
    i've never got a chance to see a tribal girl that closely just like this your character...
    with beauty and with fears, she is well-portrayed! ! ! (Report) Reply

    Soulful representation.Every tribal girl has her own way of life from frontier provinces of Pakistan to Central Asia bethey Pakhtun, Tajik, Khazar, Mongol or whatsoever, they are beautiful all within their boundaries, her crime could be pre-marital affairs what are not tolerated in lately predominant islamic societies.That way its true many Pashtuns do not enjoy the Bliss of westernized Turks.Inquisitive and substantiated well.
