In Response to Psalm 87

Was I born of Zion?
Am I some lost traveller,
Struggling to climb rocks
Stumbling towards her beautiful gates?

God, You love Zion
But is that where I'm from?
How do you know me?
How do I know me?

The singers sing of Zion
The dancers dance about her gates
But I'm stuck in mud
Stuck low in this valley

Where does my history go?
Can I trace it to Rahab?
To Tyre or Cush?
You favor Zion
Do you favor me?
