Pure Love, True Justice, Divine Seer,
only You can be everywhere at once.
We long to believe You were, are,
will be active in all hearts.
But headlines scream Your seeming absence
on streets, in courts; even in homes
and houses of worship, arrogant
presumptions strangle compassion.
Word Fire, Eye Maker, Ear Tuner,
burn Your way through blinders;
melt away encrypted fear plugs;
sear numb consciences.
