in this world there seems to be and infinity of issues to latch on to sometimes it seems that behind each small inking of possibility for positive change there is a range of issues even attached to solutions oh the extremes we jump to to try to reverse our historical curses that only seem to repeat can we please try to see something new


but see the only thing I've known to be truly newly made has been my own heart by God's great grace so maybe this new person that I have been made could someday make a change


though hope feels far though tidal waves await I pray I pray I pray that peace may remain as we face the brokenness of our human race and I say that a God who has made me new can renew even the darkest parts of all I know


so yes I get hopeless so yes I weep to know it so yes I hate to show it but yes I'll fight to find you you, child you, beloved you, seen you, known you, valued you, friend


for every person ever lost in the cracks of this human hierarchy


for every child ever left on the sides of the family


for every man ever hurt by the expected authority


for every woman ever diminished in the wake of society


for every elder ever discarded once their age was deemed ugly


for every minority ever pushed, ignored, killed for superiority


for all the rich ever sold the lie of value in money


for all the poor drowned in the weight of surviving even daily


for all disabled all dependent all indebted all enslaved for all depressed all traumatized all assaulted all whose hearts break


for so many I can't even name yet the hidden struggles the unpopular ones the ones lost to limelight the ones buried in history


oh, Lord if I long for justice I can't imagine how your heart breaks please make please make me (us) brave


so yes I get hopeless so yes I weep to know it so yes I hate to show it but yes I'll fight to find you you, child you, beloved you, seen you, known you, valued you, friend you.
