I created this Tumblr to follow my weight loss. It is dedicated to images and phrases that inspire girls like me to become better, healthier and fit. Let's help each other not to give up and reach our goals! Love!
You won’t allow me to go to school.
I won’t become a doctor.
One day you will be sick.
Poem written by an 11 year old Afghan girl
This poem was recorded in a NYT magazine article about female underground poetry groups in Afghanistan. An amazing article about the ways in which women are using a traditional two line poetry form to express their resistance to male oppression, their feelings about love (considered blasphemous).
