Niloufarosadat Tehrani is a 13-year-old Iranian young lady who makes every teacher proud. Shortly after moving to Dubai, Niloo became an A student in English because of her determination, hard work, and eagerness to learn and progress. Niloo wrote about one of her concerns and would like to share it with us.



The sound of the emergency alarm was heard another time
on that day. Everyone was looking for a safe haven.

After getting to a tight and dark shelter where they felt a
bit calm, they all started talking about the past peaceful days when the city
was green and alive, people used to love each other and everything was beautiful and happy… .

Oh! What if we return to that age? Till when this war
is going to continue? How long should such a great number of children, mothers,
fathers or so sacrifice their lives? How long?

If we appreciated peace, there wouldn’t have been any
wars. Peace, peace, what a beautiful word!

I wish the word PEACE, not WAR, could be heard everywhere
all the time.

Here I am pleading for a lasting peace for every nation, every
race and every religion.


13-year-old Iranian Shirin Al Ansari shares with us today one of her short poems that came from the heart. Poetry is Shirin’s safe haven where she expresses her feelings and thoughts, and flies far away to a fantasy world of her own.



I tell you I’m ok

I tell you I’m fine

But I’m just good at telling lies

I’ve said all my goodbyes

Now it’s time for me to fly

To a place far far away

Where I can scream and cry day by day

I will stay like this forever

This misery and pain will end never
