A poem in 5 parts

The Oppressed

Enslaved. Imprisoned.

Unseen. Unheard. Without hope.

Fear. Hunger. Despair.

The Oppressor

Power. Greed. Ego.

I need. I want. I deserve.

Trampling underfoot.

Liberators

No more. This must stop!

Anger. Violence. Broken hearts.

Healing that destroys.

The Liberator

Release from darkness.

Freedom proclaimed for captives.

Broken hearts made whole.

Our response

Mercy and justice.

Love your neighbor as yourself.

Love God. Walk humbly.

Micah 6:8 ~ Today’s Bible Verse
