come and see

“He said to them, ‘Come and see.’  They came and saw where he was staying, and they remained with him that day.  It was about four o’clock in the afternoon.”  John 1:39

when we see you
staying with the refugee
kids who cry themselves to sleep;
sitting next to grandparents
stored away in homes, leaning
over to hear their whispers;
walking with the trans kid
whose classmates drive by,
littering the air with insults, how
can we go home that nigh,
and act as if nothing
has touched our core?
