Blessed Are the Queer
Blessed Are the Queer

Blessed are the wanderers,
Seeking affirmation.

Blessed are the worshipers,
Praying from closets,
Pulpits, pews, and hardship.

Blessed are the lovers of leaving –
Leaving family and familiarity,
Leaving tables
Where love is not being served.

Blessed are those who stay.

Blessed are those
Who hunger and thirst for justice –
For they will be satisfied.

Blessed are the queer
Disciples of Truth,
Living, breathing, sacred
Reflections of
Divine Love.
