Hands To the Sky

Is this how Jesus felt?

As they slaughtered him; unarmed with his hands up high

All the while his mother watched with tears in her eyes

Many times I’ve eulogized

My father, my husband, and my brother’s kidnapped lives

I’ve even eulogized my unborn child

Because in my skin you’re not afforded the benefit of the doubt

Because you’re guilty so long as you’re alive and around.
