Where does it hurt?

painting by Christy Baker

I am from Charlottesville

burning torches winding their way

through trauma ancient and new

embodied, colliding, rising

Where does it hurt? Ruby Sales asked

truth revealed while always known

O God, we are the problem!

Eyes opened I wrestle Jacob like

Who is the God I worship?

Olam chesed yibaneh (we will build this world from love)

There are events and times in our lives that cause us to reevaluate everything we thought we knew or believed. What have been those moments in your live? How have they changed you?
