Listen

 We know what we’ve been doing.

Blowing through what’s good.

We take each grape from the vine

At a time.

We know what they’re saying.

They’re saying “Give it up.”

Offering forgiveness,

If we can be the ones to listen.

Why is it okay to take,

And never have to answer?

In truth, no words yet spoken,

But we know this is broken.

They’re saying “Give it up.”

Offering forgiveness,

If we can be the ones to listen.

We can hear the heartbeat of a single cell,

And our own as well.

Because forgiveness is the mission,

We can be the ones,

We have only to listen.
