A Glimmer In The Dark

A Glimmer in the Dark is a poetry collection documenting the heartbreaking and transformative journey of Afghan refugee Samman Akbarzada. Akbarzada interweaves a powerful tapestry of prose reflecting on her connection to, as well as the inevitable escape and separation from, her war-torn homeland of Afghanistan and the suffering and resilience of those living on the margins of yet another immense human tragedy. A Glimmer in the Dark is ultimately about the perseverance and strength survivors find through deep familial bonds and the compassionate assistance of communities devoted to helping those displaced by war and suffering.

“When I left Kabul, our land might have been burning, but the sky was blue. And the epiphany struck me that they could not ruin Afghanistan’s sky. When there is a way for the light to come in, there will come a day when the darkness will end—it is inevitable. Here’s to that day.”
