like abraham and sarah
i also heard the promise of god on the way
to this new land
but while they tell their story
with words of faithfulness
you need to know that for me,
those words have become the language of heartbreak;
i have been cursed by their blessing.
and in the end
when the plans change,
the promise is withdrawn
and the future rewritten
my dreams have become abraham’s litter,
and i am left on the side of faith’s road.
