all the things I would say

"God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging."
Psalm 46:1-3

If I were oppression, I would say
Question me. Study me. Laugh at me.
I would say
Throw up the shades into the air
Like a kite in the wind.
Let the light burn through the pane.
I would say run wild into the sea.
Let the waves burst through your very soul. Let the salt of your tears bandage your heartache. Fall to the ground. Dig your fingers into the dirt.

I've seen the world, and the world I've seen is fruitless. The thread of hand-me-down history is frayed. The knot is not satisfied by mere man.

I would say
Wake, rise. Child, you are not alone.
Can't you see I make you strong?
For God does not rest until creation is complete.
