peacemaking: wisdom from the margins

Does not wisdom call out?
Does not understanding raise her voice?

To you, O people, I cry:
set your hearts on me and listen

for my lips will speak the truth

Sophia is not voiceless.

Did we not listen? We were distracted.
Have we not heard? The gift not ours to give.

Incline your ear and understand, amplify
her voice. Her story is her own and
yet our lives entwine

for those who find me find life
together and to the full.
