The flood gate has opened.
And the water is filled with the sunken.
From the depths, come sisters' cries,
Faint but discernible.
And yet...the others look to themselves.
"It was me."
"I did it."
The shame is paralyzing, unyielding
And while brothers wander in the lonely pasture.
Sisters are still in the water.
Let us walk from land to sea.
And listen to the prayer of the sunken:
Hear O Israel.
Concern us not with how we are seen.
But with how we hear. And act.
Pulling our sisters
and our selves out of the drowning place
At long, long last.
