How Can I Hide My Sorrow?

How Can I Hide My Sorrow?
            By Farahnaz

I am an Afghan girl,
Tears in my eyes, pen in hand,
Writing from my heart.

That heart, full of sorrow,
Pain, grief, sores,
How can I hid my sorrow?

No one understands me
Or feels my sadness.
No one smoothes ointment on my wounds.

How can I hide the sorrow
That fills me,
When my heart is
