Starting Anew


It pains me

It hurts my heart

That they do not see you

That every image and depiction

Every time they say your name

Every reference to you

Is completely based on

And filled up with

A big heavy steamy ball full of



That your beautiful essemce

Of freedom

Is positioned in such as way

As to be anything



But you.


And they do not know

That with each image

Accepted and declared

Cursing you

Embracing “others”

Brings them further and further away

From who they really are.


Our creative potential

Our freedom in you

Our heart’s desire

Our joy

Our strength


In this world

We have learned

To choose


Less than


Slightly less than


It is time!

To throw the whole thing away

To watch it crumble


To stand amongst the rubble

As tall as we truly are

To stand with honor

To be

Sons and daughters

Priests and kings

Of the One Living



Can we really “start anew?”

Of course we can

If we only knew

And began to really live

Within God’s Creation

That breathes and births

Inside us all.
