Prayer for the World’s Turning: When a Revolutionary Soul Dies

coral colored stone with the word remember on it with line of stones in the background in various shades of coral and beige

With credit and thankfulness to Rachel Stomel for teaching me the words:

“May your memory be a revolution.”

yes we pray
for your memory
to be a revolution
so that every one who turned away
from your face
from your voice
from your name
every generation who refused to bear witness
to your pain
did suddenly feel the earth shake
and turn
maybe today
because you died
because you gasped
because you breathed
because you dreamed
because your heart
still moving
