what words can there be?
another murder in the U.S.
and we try and try and try to push back
to remake our world
to be Your people in a world that makes no sense
sometimes we just have to sit right down and cry.
Sit with us, we beg, surround us
and when it’s time
give a hand up
put your great big arm around us
and help us step forward.
