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
is the Divine Way
I hang on the cross with Christ each day.
I die and resurrect again
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.
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
I come for the fearless in loving
for the energies spent
