you kissed the very rope
that would martyr you
in doing so you gave us hope
strength to stand witness
to our Faith in all lands
with love you continue to bless
women look to you and Tahirih
your martyrdoms so pure
intercede for us as we bow to pray
they took you at sixteen years
from your children’s sides
didn’t know you had no fears
“recant your Faith” they screamed
a smile graced your lips
more strength than they dreamed
“This where I’ve got to be”
“Take my life, take it all away”
Dance Mona, dance!
