Lord, What Have We Done? {A Poem}

girl at sunset

A voiceless thought hovers

with tear-tired eyes

as the plane lifts from Africa’s soil.

Three years packed into six bags

back across the ocean

to our new unknown.

Amid scattered shoes

and crinkled clothes

in overstuffed suitcases


like an early morning fog

makes its home in our mind.

No longer unspoken

the words burst forth

“Lord, what have we done?”

-Debbie Crawford
