Arise

This week

Humans in space

Even the cosmos

Planning to place human feet

On other planets

Exploration now

While greedy

national powers

debate future 

war

And peace

Amid the stars

 

Here

And here

Refugees on the terra

Displaced

People of no territory at all

No shelter

No safety

No food

No known future

 

This week

Worshippers in Germany

On a holy day

Targeted by violence

By a not-rogue-enough remnant

Of the past

Tied to

Too common threads

Of hate

 

This week

workers 

were microchipped

willingly

Their bodies

marked

By commerce

And technology

(Has anyone paused to

think on the future implications?)

 

This week

Thousands

Gather

To fight extinction

Shutting down the streets

Crying out for change

Self-preservation

 

This week mental health

Was lifted up

Yet thousands remain

Isolated

people don’t

look up

on the train

 

This week

A narcissist

Erratically gambles lives

Again

For personal gain

He lies

And lies

And lies

 

And the pure of heart cry out

And shout

and pray

 

Do you not feel the birth pangs

Of creation?

Her timing

Closer and closer together

Space and time

Constricted together

Yet

The new creation

Is not yet here

 

Creation crying out for

The Creator 

The Righteous One 

The Prince of peace

Mighty God

The God of justice

To come

 

Oh the nations cry

Out

All Creation groans

For the children of God to arise
