Bin Laden’s Niece

Curry Smelling
Bin Laden’s niece

“You better say sorry for what your people did”
“Your dad creates bombs at home”
“Why do you guys like to kill us”

Classroom filled with devious kids
burnt any innocence I had left in me
its where I met my friend depression
where my self-esteem ripped like pencil shavings

But Ammi and Abboo
they needed school
they needed me to go to school
so I could be successful

So their trip to America is worth it.
