“We Were Broken”
By Jennifer Goodman
We are broken, we are beaten, we are raped,
we are disrespected.
We are a former glory, a former image, a former likeness.
We are looking
for our eye sight, for our heartbeat, for our light.
before we could,
because we couldn't
You died, so that we wouldn't
in this space, in this darkness, in this rest.
Now, in present time, in an instant, like a miracle,
like a sweet scent,
like a promise.
We are restored!
We are filled, we are renewed, we are here,
we are living, we are holy, we are spirit, we are breath.
We have found
who died and through death, we found life
My King, I love with my heart.
I’m whole, I'm joy, I'm peace, I'm wealth, I'm yours!
This love you created in me,
that began in you.
We are thankful, we are connected,
We Were Broken.
