Unraveling

img_2317-1

This is a photo I took visiting the Boston Holocaust memorial with my husband before he went to rehab. I remember telling him that we need to be mindful of history. 

The present is a violent place with the election of Trump and a surge in hate crimes. The future is a shadowy place with talks of Muslim bans, mass deportations, reduced restrictions on the police, and a state of “law and order”. Right now I mourn deeply and I am experiencing fear. There is so much to be done, but as we embark on this dark journey please learn from history, be vigilant, and take care of ALL of your neighbors.

The Unraveling

The bottom gives                                                                                                                                         The feeling an unraveling
The children’s blinking eyes questioning                                                                                         Ancient eyes raining tears                                                                                                                 Unceasing they pour

This is an unraveling                                                                                                                                   The blanket that cradled me                                                                                                                     Her seams loose

Bright light hatred shines                                                                                                                     From the flashlight in hand                                                                                                                 Sirens spinning red inconsolable shrieking mayhem                                                                     Blinding eyes
Illuminating tattered threads

It is an unraveling
From the afterlife fearless voices call                                                                                                     History begging                                                                                                                                               Mercy

From the dirt of the earth                                                                                                                     Pleading                                                                                                                                                             Mercy                                                                                                                                                             Firm ground downtrodden                                                                                                                     Their boots marching                                                                                                                               Metal in holsters cold unforgiving

The spirits mourning
Spare me                                                                                                                                                     Leave me be

Reeling silent scream from my underbelly
Community rising                                                                                                                                   Amidst the unraveling

God (Allah, Spirit, Creator, Mother Earth etc) help us all.

  1. Nothing to fear when the power of the Risen Christ is within you. Easy for me to say right? This power can only be realized when a relationship with Christ has been realized. But for now, know and understand that theses protests are fueled by George Soros and his cronies in an attempt to destabilize American just like he has done all over the world. Russia stopped him in his tracks and now we have President-Elect Trump doing the same thing. The enemy is already defeated and the victory is ours. Trust in God my friend He will give you peace.
