And May Another Ten Take Her Place... - Poem by Dee Daffodil
I would have liked to have said...
I knew her well
But I didn't
I would have loved the opportunity
To meet her...perhaps have tea
But that will never be...
Was the highest ranking female police officer
What courage that must have taken!
What a strong soul
She must have had...
To arise everyday...knowing...
That she was a marked woman!
She was a woman who stood
For what she believed in!
She helped guide women
And represented freedom...
Freedom from oppression
And because of what she represented...
She was murdered by the Taliban
Ohhh it's no secret...
No need to 'shush me'...
You see...they've already
Taken the credit for the kill
COWARDS! ! !
So....I'll end on this note...
I hope that her death
Will not have been in vain
I hope that another ten women
Step in to take her place
And another ten for each of them
Should they meet with the same fate!
And who knows....
Perhaps some day...
They'll be free...
