Cry of Little Asifa…

Reading Time: 1 minute

An evocative protest poem by Sarala, exclusively for Different Truths

Paint me and my sorrow 

In black and grey

In your hearts 

I live 

In the darkness, I cry 

I am floating 

In dark clouds 

Above you 

In you, I live 

In you, I died 

A thousand times 

But I am awake 

In the dark night 

Still feeling the 


Still in tears 

I live in 

Your hearts

Don’t throw me away 

Let me live 

In your hearts!
