In memory of a girl who loved music and singing

By Amir Fardi



She was a young woman, called Neda

Known only to her family and close friends

Her "calling" came one sunny day near her home.

Now the whole world knows her by her beautiful eyes

That looks through blood, courage, innocence and death. 


She had broken no law

Much like her many compatriots

Gunned down in cold blood, too

Or languishing in damp/dirty prisons

For just saying "where is my vote?"


She was gunned down by an assassin

Who knew nothing about her

in the daylight and in front of many. 

The authorities who are supposed to go after her killer

Are now going after her family, neighbors and friends

Lest they mourn in the open for their beloved Neda

For that will disturb the peace,

And will break our social tranquility


Now many seem no longer want to know

What happened to our votes. 

Who wants to know anyway?

At such high costs,

After all we do have our wise leaders,

Who will make sure that "no one breaks the law".

Even if in means killing the people in cold blood,

Like they did our beloved Neda.
