For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent,
    and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest,
until her vindication shines out like the dawn,
    and her salvation like a burning torch.”  Isaiah 62:1

this year,
let us give our voices
to those who are never heard,
rather that acting like
we know everything;
this year,
let us not give
a pittance of our peace,
a sliver of our grace,
a morsel of our mercy,
a candle of compassion
(for fear we will go empty), but
not grow weary in sharing
everything we have, as
we discover you are
constantly stocking the shelves
of our hearts and souls
