#FiveMinuteFriday: Build

community Faith Poetry Solitude Strength

I’m joining #FiveMinuteFriday over at Kate Motaung’s place. The five-minute free write word is BUILD.  Here is what I’ve written with no edits, no corrections, etc. This is five minutes of free flowing natural writing. I find more and more that it spills out in poetry.

 

It has become evident that our truths
Have become self-evidence

Here lies our fate in the construct
Of this marginalized, penalized body

I am without breath asked to build
Telling when and how and what to build

Fast market doctrines shape these
feelings – can’t quick fix this

Knees cracked from kneeling too long
Questions, more questions, less relief

It has become evident that our truth
Holds the self-evidence

But we turn the mirror to the crowd
Always find ourselves behind it

Honey on tongues tastes better
Than grit between teeth

But we are losing our teeth.

I found some inspiring articles about current events:

  1. Social Justice is a Christian Tradition – Not a Liberal Agenda
  2. Social Justice IS Spiritual Warfare, but THAT Wasn’t My Dream
