There is a fire in my heart
Shut up in my bones –
Says the prophet Jeremiah –
I am on fire – I say
My world is burning
My country is fractured

It’s all too much.
The fire is slower

Another war or failure of justice
Another attempt to take away my rights
Another moment of progress for progress’s sake
Another child who has to rebuild their future in a new home once more…
