I Am an Afghan Child

I am an Afghan child

I want a piece of peace

I want my own world

Please stop violence against me

I am innocent

I am small

I just want to go outside

Without fear

I need to enjoy the sunshine

And skip and run

Without fear

I want to go to school

Without fear

We do not want war

In my country

I want to walk in n a safe place

With my parents

I need to hear the voice of birds

Instead of the voice of explosions

I will get an education and

I will find a way to stop the violence

I am an Afghan child

I am Afghanistan’s future

One day I will no longer be

A child and I will build

A beautiful Afghanistan

Without fear
