Called Out

Disturb the peace! Disquiet calm!

Dry tears of those who weep!

Speak truth! You said. Expose the wrong!

Disrupt complacency!


I’m much too weak and way too tired.

I answered in reply.

Not ready and so unprepared –

Today is not the time!


Your mercy then attuned my ears

To hear my brothers’ groans

Your grace unmasked my blinded eyes

To see my sisters’ wounds


Have mercy, Lord! I cried aloud.

You heard my anguished call

And gave me strength to do the task

And carry out your will!
