That body they pulled from the river

That body they pulled from the river

was once full of smiles and mischief

dancing, laughing and full of life

 

That body they pulled from the river

was so young

How did she get there?

She doesn’t belong in the river, in the city…

That body they pulled from the river

is someone’s best friend

someone’s auntie

someone’s niece

someone’s neighbor

someone’s classmate

someone everyone knows…

 

A missing person

A body pulled from the river

A news story

A memory
