mercy

May 22, 2012 § 1 Comment

mercy, you must know
keeps its own time in coming
it’s our time to wait

under the painted
heads of glorified leaders
looking down from walls

our inheritance?
laws deemed to be from on high
and empty buckets

all of our children
asking only with their eyes
is there such a thing

as happiness and
what is this word, oppression?
where are we going?

and how long before
this separating of us
by us ends for good?

yes, mercy is slow
keeps its own time in coming
to wait now, our time
