Dear perfect unity,
Giver of breath,
Thank you for this new morning
Each new sunrise is one which many blessed & beloved souls don’t get to see
George Floyd. Breonna Taylor. Ahmaud Arbery.
Belly Mujinga and the 376,000 other beautiful souls lost to coronavirus
Countless other precious children.
Today our hearts are so heavy
Grant us a sip of joy in this new day
Another day that has been given to us by grace alone
May our gratitude be a tribute to the fallen
And, give us the courage to do what today calls for
Convict our hearts
Let us own our burdens
And answer the call to justice
Which rings out, deafeningly loud, from deep to deep
Go ahead of us
Go behind us
Be the honour guard for every protest
Hold us up
As we hold up the oppressed
To lift them out or the waters of hate
May it be so.
