PAD Challenge Day 2: Forever and a Day

Day 2:  Write a “not today” poem.

Forever and a Day

waiting for:

love to massage discouraged bones
and saturate the tongues of uncertainty,

God’s people to stand in each other ‘s
sands while cradling their sea of tears,

music to be an antidote,
dissolving the clef and flat notes of  our brokenness,

stars to declare a safe passage for liberty and justice for all,

for the world to wake up and be steel magnolias,

but not today,

our hearts, minds, and souls

are not in uniform for humility
