Mountains Of Hope

This is a poem I wrote for Aania, daughter of my friend Asif Siddiqui. Hope you like it. 

Innocent eyes
Stare at the world
Hoping for Change,
To obliterate boundaries,
Dreaming of
Rising above
The name
And the religion
That tags along,
Asking questions
Not from others
But herself,
My identity
Is by my Work
And nothing else..
Don't judge me,
Look at the footprints
In the snow
I am going to climb
Mountains of Hope
Come along
Join me,
Come with me....
