A poem dedicated to the courageous women in Iran:

Did you cook and eat with her

Did you shelter and protect her

Did you sing your favorite songs together

Did you learn from her

Did you encourage her

Did you watch her grow

Did she learn to dance

Did you laugh with her

Did you pray with her

Did you cry and celebrate with her

Did you ask her for help

Did you ask her all your questions

Did you watch and learn how to love

How beautiful!

Did the light in her hair expose your darkness

Was her light too bright

Where did you take her

Did you abandon her

Did you cage her

Did you deny her a voice

Did you beat her

Did you value your rules more than her life

All the secrets inside your heart are known; turn and seek mercy.
