Pyre ablaze
With flames of
Terror and hatred, spewing

Ashes smoulder
With passionate defiance
Birthing voice of dissent –

Veils ignite
Sparks of freedom,
Forgotten symphonies of rebellion

Zainab Ummer Farook

This set of three Elfje is written in honour of Malala Yousufzai, a 14-year old teen activist in Pakistan who was shot by terrorists recently because she campaigned for girls’ right to education.

  • Just read the set of 3 Elfjes called Phoenix… I certainly hope Malala will read them one day! A tribute to the young warrior of light. Thank you Zainab.
