The Afghan Women's Writing Project celebrates International Women's Day



Today Is Different

I am embarrassed
Looking here and there—
What to write first?
Words, smile, tell me,
Send me first!
I don’t know—should I
Write a letter to my mother
Or call Masha?

Today is different
It is the 8th of March
I am looking for a gift
To send to Afghan women
In a small package of love

I send you love and strength
My pen desires, my poem smiles
That I should write you,
Women of my country
Congratulations this 8th of March

History is witness, I swear
Every day can be a bright day
Every day can be your day
