Malala: The Flame Queen


She is a small yellow flame,
She does not fear! You dry wind of rules mortal!
From your unknown valleys of culture
As you come with chain to bound

The purity within is enough
Her beauty is when she wears her orange silk
Heart ignites in blue and white
She just sits there and spreads the light
Not bothered about what comes next

Oh You! The self-imposed holy wind
You touch her not!
Come if you are bold enough!
We, thousand brothers with crossed hands,
Protecting her till we fall!

If you succeed breaking us into pieces
And if you could make her fall,
Remember!
She'll pass the fire to others,
And a thousand candles will be lit,
To tear off your darkness,
Then you'll be weightless!
And you'll be vanished into space!
She is not alone!
You dont want to be burned, do you?

    A strong tribute to the light of knowledge and education, a strong condemnation of darkness of ignorance...this intense assurance from you conveys enough moral support for such flame-queen and fearless girl...a flame kills the darkness... (Report) Reply
