I Die and Resurrect Again

If you stand for love

after you’ve spoken your truth

you fix your lenses so that you can forgive

 

Your staying and working through the tension

until you are given a definitive change of direction

is a part of taking your practice

off the mat

 

It also processes the ego

 

Learning the lessons and applying them

is what allows us

to discharge the encrustation from our lives

 

Willing wellness to others

regardless

is the Divine Way

 

I hang on the cross with Christ each day.

Each day

I die and resurrect again

Life Brings Punishment Enough for the Infallible

My prayers are for the peace of the world, for Love to fully blossom and grow. It is unnecessary to demonize another group. No zero game is needed.

I always knew I was a Stephen, a speaker of the truth Love gives me. I am willing to be the scapegoat, but not a seeker of martyrdom; I’m not seeking it, but open to what God gives me to do.

Long ago, God allowed me to be more comfortable with black people than many of their white counterparts. I’ve always gone for the underdog — the One who was cast out, the one they said could never be accepted. I root for the rejected, the downtrodden, the seemingly hopeless. I am a prayer warrior for those deemed to be the unchosen, knowing that God made all people to be more than Hell’s play things.

It seems my lot in life is to be rejected by the orthodox, to see the meaning behind the words, and to know the Love that only seeks to create a kinder world, not a retributive one purely for the sake of punishing the infallible.

One Man’s Treasure

I went to where my service was needed

not unto those who were sufficiently able

and not to those who had made up their minds

 

I came to the downtrodden

to those rejected

who, if anyone else, would be tied to public opinion

and made subject to manipulations

of whether love was deserved

 

I came to those

who moved toward growth

verses protection

 

I come for the fearless in loving

for the energies spent

in accepting

what is
