Hodegetria

She does not weep anymore
Not for lacking compassion
But because we do
The compassionless are not moved by tears
The compassionless are not moved by lamentation.
Hardened hearts remain hard
Yet in our rage against injustice she whispers
Yet in our crusade against the hatred she whispers
Yet in our anguish for the victims she whispers
“Be soft”
