The prophet need not know famous Friends.
Need not be able to quote scripture
Need not be “in”.
Need not have clever words
Or “the answer”.
All that is needed is to walk HUMBLY
The prophet cradles
The despair, the bleakness, the wounds
In the arms of his/her suffering
And watches the Light shine.
The prophet does not fear the dark or the light. He/she speaks
Their fear and hopes
Out loud, birthing themselves
As long as God is the midwife.
