To stop another evil:
Is this doing good?dw, 3 Sep 2021
Any words I might offer
Would detract from these
Stuck in my soul
Oozing the cure for not caring enough
Wrapping the wounds
In tight bands of open-eyed hope and mercy
With no further ado, here are the words, words I gathered from James Cone in his book The Cross and the Lynching Tree; words I hope will wound and heal in your soul as they have in mine. Grace and peace to you…
We are very good at choosing and using words that divide.
Maybe we use them because we don’t really choose them – they are near at hand, floating in the air around us.
