Malala's heart of steel...

Inspired by IMKarn's words

Malala your purety is of driven whiteness on
only the softest of snow
And those men the darkest stain on humanity
to do you harm you know

Thirteen and already a woman with just
one thing wrong
Terrorism leaves its ugly scars yet
the scars shan't' last too long

Let the world wring its hands when
revenge is on the mind
When a little girl can't go to school or
not learn its just unkind

Terrorists can't win when she'll but
to turn her other cheek
And shit on a white robed phony whose
hearts minds and souls are weak

Malala my dear you do battle and the world
lies weak and free
The pacifists who cry for peace
take this young girls lesson and see

In Malala lies the hero the bravest of
the brave
While a freer people wring their wrists
totally enslaved

Beautiful! I read this piece when Leslie wrote it, it moved me then and now. Malala was so brave, speaking out against the terrorists, refusing to quit going to school. I am glad she is doing well after their brutal attempt to silence her voice. Thank you..
