Say Amen

Everyday the world wakes us

then we summon our waters

all the dampness we can afford

We give into the battles that licks into our core

We look at the mirror

For imperfections

For dents

For the echoes of yesterday

For the blasting past

But we can start the machine of hope

We can keep it running

We can write a sermon on grace

Where the grasses are green and wet

Where the heroes have many names

Spread my prayers like jam across your palms

Smear it on your head and whisper peace

Lay it on your chest and say mercy

Say selah to the prayers of old

Say amen to the crispy promises of the scriptures

we should not believe otherwise

if he promised peace

he will give it.
