Subtitle: A Coda to I Woke Up Black Today (May 26, 2020) and I Woke Up Sad and Angry Today (May 28, 2020)
Sub-subtitle: What we do does matter.
I have come to believe, to know
that it is here,
where resides my despair,
that hope, unrelenting,
seeking, finding, making home in the tiniest corner,
Hope, the eyes through which,
beyond the present darkness,
I can (I am able) to behold the Light of what is not yet.
For as the Apostle saith, so I agree:
Who hopes for what we see?
And if we hope for what we do not see,
then we wait (and I add: work) for it with patience.
What is this work?
For me, it is to allow the Spirit entrance to teach,
that I may learn and relearn the lesson –
to live the life – of Jesus
of love and justice:
loving acting justly
justly acting loving.
For justice never loves “just us.”
Justice ever loves all; always and in all ways.
So, in despair when I, you, we ask:
“What can, will, ought I, you, we do?”
Do this that all may live.
