In Memory Of Heather Heyer

In Memory Of Heather Heyer

August 13, 2017

By John Kaniecki

Today is a day of sorrow
So alive,
So young,
So beautiful,
You will never see tomorrow-
There is the reality
Instead of you
It could have been me
Or anyone who serves the cause
Who fights the fight
For justice and all that is right,
You did not want the martyr’s role
But you sacrificed your soul,
And so your name is written down
One more on a list far too long
Your spirit has been released
May you find a gentle peace
I can only offer you one thing
Besides my regret
That your name Heather Heyer
We will never forget.
Now is the time to mourn
Now is the time to cry
To see this world of scorn
And not only ask ‘Why?’
But to try
To make it better
Fair thee well

Heather Heyer
