A Spell For Justice & Love

I originally wrote this in the wake of the Pulse Nightclub shooting. But I'm sharing this during Pride Month, several years later, because our Trans-Sisters and Brothers are still being murdered for claiming their identity, because 40% of homeless youth were kicked out of their houses when they came out of the closet, because our society is still full of the -isms and phobias.. and because Stonewall was 50 Years Ago.. and because SILENCE = DEATH & our words have Power.

So I turn my words into Spells...

* * *

May the Beloved and Mighty Dead...

The Ancient and Queer Ones...

be stirred from their peaceful slumber.

May they Rise In Power.

May they remind us to love fiercely and openly.

May they console us in our grief.

May they turn our rage to justice.

May they inspire us to continue to dance.

May they shine their light upon the individuals and organizations that oppress us.

Seven times i cry out against the Institutions of Racism, Homophobia, Sexism, Ableism, Ageism.. and all the other isms and phobias..

Seven times I cry out like the seven blasts of the Horn of Jericho.

May the walls crumble between us.

May the Tower of Babble fall...

May we realize the world speaks a single language... Love.

May we love and be loved.

May we love and be loved.

May we love and be loved.
