Great Minds are Young

Hats Off!

Posted on: April 27, 2011

My heart is rejoicing, my hopes are high

Our youth is shining, the limit is the sky! 🙂

13-year-old half Emarati half Lebanese Maryam Al Qassimi is a wise, sensitive, and proud young lady, whose poetry expresses the depth of her thoughts and the maturity of her character.

This is how she proudly and confidently introduces herself: “I am thirteen years old. I’m half Lebanese half Emarati. Music is one of my passions since it has a poetic vibe that I truly admire. Writing is also my other passion. I started writing when I was about 11 years old. Today, writing poems is a hobby that I do daily. I am also an editor of the school magazine which is a great opportunity just like this one.”




Of all my years so far

I learned so much

To equalize all people

Or something as such

I learned other lessons

A lot, I can say

To respect and to give

And how special it is to forgive

Yes, I might seem wise

Even if I failed a thousand tries

Life can’t be a ready go

it can’t be perfect don’t you know?

I learned to never treat people with neglect

We should all treat them with respect

Young or old, we are all a part of humanity

And experience most of tragedy

Giving world

Can’t you see the love in their eyes?

When you have all you want

And yet they’re the ones with pride

Can’t you look deep inside your heart?

When you have everything

And their lives are falling apart

If you say we could make a change

Let’s make the change today

By helping people in each and every way
