Poem for Jvoi

i cry more 

for life

than

death;

but your life

was taken

far too 

soon.

amid

the

turmoil of

our days,

only

the brave

and protected

walk

without

fear.

there

is no time

to find

oneself,

to explore,

mis-take

or learn

on the battle grounds

of these

city streets.

yet your voice

will live on–

a muezzin’s call;

searching

and longing

for love.

in their infancy

your days

were terminated.

in infinity

may 

you

reside.
