Slowly, slowly I eat a pear, Slowly, slowly I perform my prayers, Slowly, slowly I go to the coaching centre, Slowly, slowly I complete my homework, Slowly, slowly I read my textbook, Slowly, slowly I read Young World, Slowly, slowly I type on my computer, And slowly, slowly I wrote this poem.

A friend is the one, Who cares about you!
A friend is the one, Who thinks about you!
A friend is the one, Who shares your joys and sadness!
A friend is the one, Who bears your madness!
A friend is the one, Who doubles your fun!
A friend is the one, Who helps you in need!

No rain, no rain, Since the year began, It’s too hot and dry, But my dear people, Please don’t cry.
Just pray and Have faith and hope, As with the rough weather, You can surely cope!
It will rain soon, From the rise of the brightest sun, Till the rise of the fullest moon, Then my friend you will see, Mother Earth’s nature and beauty!

I love my grand parents I love my nana because He always gives me gifts, Whenever I visit them.
He likes my drawings.
And likes to play ‘Doctor, doctor’ with me.
I feel sorry for him because he is so often hurt, But he is always ready to take me out.
That's why I love him.
I love my nani too, because she cooks for me food that I like.
She stitches lots of pretty clothes for me.
She takes good care of me.
I love them because they love me too.
They are the best grandparents in the whole world!

She is the queen of bravery, We love her, She is the daughter of Pakistan, What will we do without her!
Those people who harmed her Are neither humans nor our brothers!
The destroyers of Pakistan, Yes that’s what they should be called!
We love Malala, No matter what!
We will continue spreading her message, We will continue praying for her, We wish Malala the best of luck!

Winter vacation is on the way, It’s not the time to eat ice cream, Winter vacation is the time to play Indoor games; I also play with the cat I have tamed.

My sister is nice, She is scared of mice, She likes to swim in a pool, She likes to sit in a cool room, Her name is Eshal, She is very cute, She has black hair, Her favourite colours are Green pink and red; She likes to watch Pogo, Jinnah House is her class’ logo, She likes to play with the ball, Alisha is her favourite pal.
