Examining Biblical Scripture


grief begets grief
grief begets grief
and still you send


The son of Righteousness shall


with healing 

in His wings.

And so the prophets finish

But your pain is not resolved

and still you do not surrender.

Your pain of decades — centuries


through your messengers

your anger, rebuke, 


goes on and on 

— and on.

And so you give 

and forgive 


yet wait for 

my return

and wait 


And still you send one more 

to warn

and still you send 

one more

and still you send 

your son

to cover.

Grief begets grief

grief begets grief

and still you send


and still —

Asking only
