Holy Innocents

I pray at your feet,
Child of Aleppo,
seeking mercy
for my ignorance
and unyielding heart.

I pray at your feet,
Child of Eritrea,
seeking forgiveness
for the violence of
global capitalism.

I pray at your feet,
Child of Bethlehem,
seekingĀ pardon
and consolation
through lifeĀ and death.

on Matthew 2:16
