choice of words

Pentecost +23 - Year C

help
I've been yelling so long
violence
has been beating hearts forever
wrong
wrong wrong everywhere we look
trouble
troubles nights and days
destruction
from yesterday ruins today
strife
turns to never-ending feud
contention
begins winning at all costs
law
slackens into injustice
wickedness
is at every gate
perversion
skews judgment

stand
and watch anyway
watch
and listen deeply
listen
and write what you hear
write
a heard vision
vision
plain bold large
large
large enough to last to the end
end
of lies of delay of pride
