long after

“For the needy shall not always be forgotten,
    nor the hope of the poor perish forever.”  Psalm 9:18

long after
our memory of the
vulnerable has faded,
you lie awake at night
figuring out how to care for them;
long after we have
put their hope in
detention centers,
you are picking the locks
to set it free for their lives
