"You won’t allow me to go to school.
I won’t become a doctor.
Remember this:
One day you will be sick."

This poem was recorded in a NYT magazine article about female underground poetry groups in Afghanistan. An amazing article about the ways in which women are using a traditional two line poetry form to express their resistance to male oppression, their feelings about love (considered blasphemous).
