Still alive!
(Malala`s message to her assailant and his supporters)

My foe, my assailant, the Taliban

did you notice?

I am still alive!

and I am here to stay!

this time, history belongs to me

by the grace of God!

My foe, my assailant, the Taliban

your paradigm is a leper

who lives and decided to remain

in the darkness of caves

you hide your face

and hold your gun

and thrive on fear

and ambush pacifist and armless

is this courage?

Look at me now!

my paradigm is freshness of awakened morning

I belong to a lush green valley

my sibling is breeze

my friends, the valley girls

we sing along with waterfalls, with flowing river

the songs of awakening and freedom

We, the valley girls, have hearts and minds

no different from branches of trees

waiting for spring

and who can stop flowers to blossom?

Our eagerness to get education is our weapon

our weapon to be free!

It is also our song,

our santour for love and peace

a lantern for journey through dark night

we are not alone

decency of humanity is with us

countless human souls, with us

to sing along, to fight along

to move along and win,

the final win of freedom!

Did you notice!

we, the men and women,

are side by side,

and are equal in this fight for our dignity,

we are born to struggle together through life

And this is the will of God!

And this is the will of time!

My foe, my assailant, the Taliban

did you notice?

because of your paradigm

you are hiding your face

And my face is open

I stand upright with dignity

Did you notice?

I am still alive!

We are still alive!

Dekh Zinda hon main

Humla Awar mere

Dekh Zinda hon main!

Meray rub ki raza

waqt ka faisla

Dekh zinda hon main!

Ik teri soch hay

teergi ki makeen

Korh main mubtila

Haath main aslaha

Munh chupay hoay

Begunahon pay tau

chup kay humala karay

Ye tira hosla

Ik miri soch hay

subh ki taazgi

Sabz waadi hay ghur

or saheli saba

or ye jhurnay mere

saath nughma sara

saz e dumsaaz hay

Shor-e-durya mira

Shaakh e dil pay naey

Phool khilnay ko hain.

Dekh mera qalam

mera hathyar hay

pyar ka geet hay

amn ka saaz hay

Iss siyah raat main

roshni ka sufer

han mira khwab hay

ghup anhderon main hon

jhilimilata diya

Dekh zinda hon main!

Dekh ye bhi kay main

ab kay tunha nahin.

Anginat log hain

saath nughma sara

Shurf-e-insaniat

Murd-o-zun aik ja

ye hay rub ki raza!

waqt ka faisla!

Aaj rooposh tau

or main surkhroo!

humla awar meray

Dekh zinda hon main!

Ye hay rub ki raza!

Waqt ka faisla!
