Lent: One

amywink March 10th, 2018

It will take all
our voices allied
against this enemy,
this idea that they
are not ourselves
in some different guise
by our fear concealed,

As if beneath or beyond
our caring and so made
unworthy of our notice by
rendered difference
we work to fabricate instead.

It would be far
more simple just
to truly see
and yet, we raise
that darkening veil
and by such labored
thought sustain
the fear we could
more easily and
rightly free.
