Every woman

0DFBFE3B-7E17-49CA-AD8C-6E93FB347C50

She was every woman 

She could be me 

She could be you 

She was not political 

She was a visitor, a guest 

Is that how one treats a guest?

Is that how one treats a sister or a mother?

She was every woman 

And she was killed senselessly 

She was killed in a most cruel manner 

She was killed with a lot of anger 

Why?

Because she was a woman

And did not closely follow the unreasonable dictates of the regime 

She was every woman 

And she was killed brutally 

She awakened again the anger that was smouldering for years

She brought them into the streets

Demanding freedom, equality, a normal life

And a future they could look forward to 

She was every woman

And she will be remembered in history 

As one whose death started a revolution
