As evil is live spelt backwards
Everything has gone wrong
Neda Soltan was standing in the street 
Singing Iran’s freedom song

Civilian beauty it was her duty
To shout and sing for truth
To shed light on the dark
Her purpose was not obtuse

Among so many rising against violence
Demanding what is right
Carrying no weapons
Soltan’s heart and mind… her only defence and might

Shouting for justice was her only injustice
In the street that day
Neda Soltan stood in the name of freedom
And a stray bullet took her life away …

WHAT DO WE SAY WHEN SOMETHING LIKE THIS HAPPENS...BUT THAT WE KNOW GOD IS USING HER DEATH IN SOME GOOD WAY. GOD BLESS AND THANKS FOR SHARING THIS 'EYE OPENING' WELL WRITTEN WORK. JOYCE

She became a heroine, but more importantly many who didn't
understand the evil of the Iranian dictatorship, now believe it
they saw it for themselves, and wre surprised.So sad to have lost her, but she did serve a purpose which most of us never do.
Superb poem, Suzie!

Love,

The world is not always big enough for hearts that try to stand for justice and only in their dying is their life fullly validated as a hero to the people...

Sad story. Her goodness will live on. Well done.
Reviewed by L. Figgins 6/30/2009
She only wanted freedom for all. Tragic. Her friend called her "a light". Too many lights have been snuffed out in this world...
