Breathe Friend... You Are Welcome Here
Not a surfacey, flimsy love either,
but a love that is deep and real and enters into truth.
A love that presses into the dark to reveal the light.
This love, this place, is for you and me.
For us pushed to the margins.
For us whom "love" has been used as a weapon against.
For us fighting to be free so that all can be free.
For us who feel deeply, sometimes wishing that we didn't.
This is our place.
May it be one of lifting for you.
A place where you can be fortified,
feel smiled on,
toss glitter in the air (but have it wash off of you easily)
and know that you are not alone.
