My Heart Is Bleeding

My heart is bleeding I can’t believe this feeling My eyes are terrified And my ears are blocked By hearing the stories Depicting their suffering On their rough premises My heart is bleeding My legs are wobbling My body has snowed This is too heavy I’m hurt teenagers are wedding They are denied rights The moon will not shine My heart is bleeding It is cold learning The day does not wake Until the morning has come Women and girls can’t read nor write They are confined to the kitchen It breaks my heart.
