Her conviction ... our freedom!

Abir Zaki

(To Wajeha Al-Huwaider)*

Abir ZakiMighty as the Ocean
gave her heart,
her freedom,
and her Godly scope
without a backward glance
to keep us, women, from going on the run…

Wondering what she could have done,
she was all alone,
barely to call anything her own,
her mission to the given
was almost divine…

Soaring like an eagle
her feathers will always fall
broadening all horizons
to help our eyes perceive the blue...

Leaving freedom’s door unattended
and on her own free will
she feels the breeze
and lifts her wings

though others
she is broken now
but I am sure
in time she’ll re-sing
upon the leas…

God Bless You my friend!
