Great Minds are Young

Talent in Wonderland

Posted on: April 28, 2011

13-year-old Raheed Allaf is a fanciful Saudi young lady, who has crafted her own peaceful, happy, imaginary perfect world, where she would spend hours creating better and prittier realities.

Let’s enjoy together two of her poems! (Check the link too)

Don’t give up yet_Raheed Allaf



She ran, she crawled, and she walked alone,

On glass that cracked, and heaved and groaned.

Those bitter lies and tales of hope,

So quick they turn your heart to stone.

A wish, a plea, a whisper in the night,

She looked up at the stars, and prayed for a sign.

Lost in the shadows, just a face in the crowd,

Invisible to all but him, and who would notice one small sin?
