The foreigner

After Isaiah 45

I wouldn’t have imagined
in my wildest fantasies
that he would anoint and bless
and raise up a foreigner
to bring justice to his people,
a feared one, a king, and bring
him honor and glory and
strength and riches to use
to reestablish his people,
without price, without reward,
to do it because it was just
and right and ordained.
Never would I have imagined
this. Never.
But he did.
