Some - A Poem by Fr. Dan Berrigan

Some


Some stood up once
and sat down.
Some walked a mile
and walked away.
Some stood up twice
then sat down.
I've had it, they said

Some walked two miles
then walked away.
It's too much, they cried

Some stood and stood and stood.
They were taken for fools
They were taken for being taken in.

Some walked and walked and walked
They walked the earth
They walked the waters
They walked the air.

Why do you stand
they were asked, and
Why do you walk?

Because of the children, they said, and
Because of the heart, and
Because of the bread.

Because
The cause
Is the heart's beat
And the children born
And the risen bread.
