Malala 17.10.12

Dear Father,

May we be
May we be thankful.
For the soul that is Malala Yusaifzu.
For the courage of one who, selflessly is…
Thank you for a world in which, her story
is repeated, reported her attackers retorted
in voices echoed by religions of all sorts.
As a child, she
Is courage
Seldom found in adults, who would rather conform.

May we be
May we be cliff faces,
Ready,
To shout back a steady
Resounding of the royal whistle she blew
May we hold fast the remote, when she appears on news.

Knowing that the world would be a much better place.
If we spoke upright and frankly to represent our views.
