Shireen – TB

10 Mar

“Until my last drop of blood”
I will reach her.
Farhad believed
In this world and the next.
If anything were to happen to her,
He’d take his own life.
“Whether I’ll be waiting
Or chasing her in the next world that is.”

This was inspired by two Afghans battling to be together.

    Oh this is beautiful. And sad. Just like the real Romeo and Juliet. Another idea I may bring into my class. Thanks. ❤
