Poem – Elma Islam
Drag me Down
There was the time when you could drag me down,
So I could not go up high, You pulled me down and chained me up
Not until I found my newfound courage to say, “NO”!
I pushed you off, And reached my destination up the sky…
I am not weak, as you thought so,
I have got no strings attached,
I can do whatever I want to do…
I found courage overnight like a fire than kindled through the night,
Until it began to ignite
You thought I could never rise, But I proved you wrong,
You can never hold me back, nobody can drag me down!
