I don’t need to be gripped
by the other side
I choose life.
I don’t need see
someone else suffer
I’m not the only one who matters
I don’t need God to orchestrate
to know Love’s saving power.
Before us You have placed a choice
between blessing and cursing
and death and life.
that have long been threatened,
for black people who were taken,
for the long standing war
that should have already been won,
bless you for demanding life.
