May 12th


I pushed so hard against everything with anger, pride, and new found intellectualism. Suffering humbled me and rejection colored me
While pain and misunderstanding buffeted me
to find myself embracing the oppressor
and checking my mouth before I scream
to walk in peace
and be more than the offspring
Of the anointed man bipolar prophet poet artist
To hug boldly, trust deeply and show love to the fringe and marginalized farthest
But maybe a reimagining and a dream of progressive Pentecostalism and
Mainline ecumenism
The bapticostal misfit
Contemplative mystic
Jesus freak
But less in word
And more in deed
Hear my prayers
And be my strength
To find you everywhere
From the cathedral to the street
