In Response to Psalm 87

Was I born of Zion?

Am I some lost traveller,

Struggling to climb rocks

Stumbling towards her beautiful gates?

God, You love Zion

But is that where I'm from?

How do you know me?

How do I know me?

The singers sing of Zion

The dancers dance about her gates

But I'm stuck in mud

Stuck low in this valley

Where does my history go?

Can I trace it to Rahab?

To Tyre or Cush?

You favor Zion

Do you favor me?
