Oh… daughter so young,
Forgive the brutes of this world,
They stand on quicksand and will sink into oblivion.
Beautiful one, you are a shining star…
No one can deny that you have made a difference
in this time and place…
Your sisters will praise your name,
For championing their rights to education.
Pakistan’s daughter and hope for the future,
Your light is brighter now.
A flame of love that will never be extinguished
From our hearts…
