grace is needed – March 30

3.30

The mother raccoon bites the head of

her cub with no eyes. The demand

of evolution, to kill the weakest, strange,

deformed, so that the fittest survive.

 

The different child at school picked upon almost

— we hope only — unto death

attacked by the same brutal Darwinian code

bred within us.

 

And then we wonder why the eyes of faith speak

above it. Grace is needed.
