Before you label me,
Read these three letters,
And add them knowing -
I’ve stood watch,
While you turned your back.
For years I’ve shielded you,
From yourselves.
I silently wept at the things you considered,
And reserved true judgment.
I labored through crushing weights
And righted the scale.
Now do as I did in your absence.
Find the holes in justice.
Fill your soul with service.
Focus on truth.
The time for watching is over.
Settle on righteousness.
And rule."
