A Prayer to Never Know


I pray I never know the right words to say

When a family is separated by unjust immigration policies

I pray I never know how to respond

When a woman shares her experience with violence

I pray I never know how to breathe

When a child says they spent the last year walking from Brazil to our border

I pray I never know how to transform tears into smiles

Or how to lighten a heart in despair


I pray I never know

Because if I knew

Then what God would I need?
