I weep for humility
Humbled as I am.
Humanity fails before my eyes
All softness forever undone.
I weep for joy, for forgiveness unbound
In pain, I weep for their sorrow
Overwhelmed by a land of smiles
That suffers hardships I will never know.
I weep to find the strength
To accept what I haven’t effected.
For peace and grace beyond all known
To protect them that should have been protected.
