do something

just tell me

anything

for my hands and my heart

to do

but sit here.

my mind is active

in prayer–

remember, remember

talking to God

is the most powerful

thing.

yet still

i itch

to engage in something,

no matter how small,

that i can see–

an action

to look at

and say,

‘see,

we are not

hopeless

after all.’
