For Leah Sharibu, A Hero


There is a wall
in my mind where thoughts of you should be.

I can’t imagine the horror,
pain or the insults you have received.

What I do know is: you are a hero
A general of the faith, an Icon of your time

Young kids will grow up hearing your exploits, your faith and your fearlessness in the face of evil

Everyday we pray for you and one day will see you again

Till then you are on our prayers
on our lips, on our phones
in our hearts
Till we meet again.
