Afghan girl ~ (For Sharbat Gula)

Sharbat Gula

Found back after forty years

Sharbat Gula was still unaware

How the beautiful piercing eyes

Of a 12-year-old Afghan orphan girl

Photographed in a refugee camp

Changed the awareness of the world

When her picture prominently appeared

On the cover of National Geographic

Leading to the Afghan Children’s Fund

How people volunteered to work

In refugee camps, inspired because of her

So, when asked to pose once more

The conservative Muslim lowered her veil
