Terror wins in Pakistan
I was a child, ten years ago.

14 years old, untarnished belief in justice.

Taken, caught up in the fervour of the moment.

I was a child, denied my parents, denied all

but the men who beat me

And worse.

There was a trial.

There was no justice,.

They told me I would hang,

But the law says no one dies.
Ten years have passed,

terror makes bad law.

Tomorrow I will die.
