Let Me Go To School
By Noorjahan H.
Let me go to school
If you burn my book
I will write on the ground
I will write my exam answers on leaves
If my pen is broken, don’t be happy
I will write on damp ground with rocks
Don’t give me your garden fruit
If I am starving
Instead, allow me to go to school
To write apple on the flimsy ground
I have hundreds of questions
And now I don’t have answers
Why shouldn’t I write on soil,
And in the cosmos?
