Her Name was Jyoti

Her name was Jyoti
and her life changed
in a moment, in moments
stitched together in violence

I want to take those moments
and scrub
set them to dry
in sunshine and love
bright and clean and full of promise

Her name was Jyoti
Her words, her story
salted with tears
fall from eyes that bear witness

Let her story fill oceans
Let her story fill our hearts
Let her story change the world

Her name was Jyoti
her name could have been you
her name could have been me

In memory of Jyoti Singh Pandey
