Is quiet tonight
My voice is silent
My ears hear the cries
My heart is where my emotion
Sits and beats out rhythms of loss
For the end of an era of transformation
Led with a vision of unity, truth and reconciliation
Many said it couldn’t be done, you proved them wrong.
Is and always
Will be my first
26 years of my life
A huge part of who I
Always will be, inspired by the power
Of transformational change and how it impacts others
Your passion racial equality – my passion equality for women
In the workplace. Your determination and commitment guides me forward.
Lost without you
The generations that learnt,
Grew and became better people
With You, now we must establish
Our path forward, as we aspire that
Even a small part of us might possibly
Be as great as you were – your mind, heart,
Body, spirit, soul…I wish you rest eternally in peace.
