‘Her soul wanted to speak , to ask of her accused Crime’ #I47notjustanumber’

In the memory of Students who perished when Somali Militants #Al Shaabab attacked Garissa University

By:Amina Jarso – A Kenyan Student in Beijing

Her soul wanted to speak,
To ask of her accused crime,
She wanted to reason with him,
If only he’d give her more time.

His eyes bloodshot with anger,
Her eyes teary with fear,
He fights to silence his conscience,
She struggles not to shed a tear.

They pause and inhale together,
Two heartbeats synchronizing ,
the gun between has no pulse,
An intruder in their first meeting.

Let’s listen much more closely,
To the gaps of words unsaid,
And give the 147 back their names,
So their memories won’t just fade.
