Upon Psalm 17
In This Dark
In this dark, we are afraid and we grieve;
we feel alone and we are lost.
Children die in paths to prosperity,
passengers perish in civilian planes,
and homeless friends hunger.
There is peace somewhere, and peace to come.
And there is justice.
As for me today, I open my eyes again.
Make me right.
