In my need, why are you talking to me ancestral spirit?
Bringing me to my knees in guilt.
And now? —to graceful humility.
Yes, our resurrection is foreseen
In the light—of all our children’s
Friendships, courtship, and dreams!
Yes, of course, why? — late we sleep
Sleeping through the night
And not awakened with history’s presence.
—Bringing us constantly to our knees
In guilt, in weakened humility? And now
In our need
Gracefully show us what to do
And show me how.
Note: Thinking about the Churches, and all common belief or non-belief religions. I grew up… with Jesuits giving me my early education, the Southern Baptists gave me my enthusiasm, the Roman Catholics gave me discipline, the friends Service Committee gave me peace, and Zen gave me enlightenment… I’m sure that is the same process for all families of their personal Faith and the path they take . I believe, we need to move into some ACTION … it should not be our surprise to submit our “Just” presence into injustice. Whether as a group, or as an individual. All the “me” (meeeez) become us.
