I am raised with fire, guns, dust and smoke. I have traveled around world, but nothing felt like home. I am a dreamer; I am a believer. I dare to face the world with its thorns. I am a black, I am a white, I am a colorful glow of light. I am a fighter, I am a lover, and stand always with what is right. I still have to go on a way so long
I am a patriot from Afghanistan.
