It’s taken most of this lifetime
to finally learn
not to judge myself based on
anyone else’s reasoning,
ideals, and moral compass.
I will never live up to you
if I am going to be labeled,
scrutinized and manipulated.
I have my own ideas, thoughts, reasoning,
rationales that run from here
and end pass your comfort zone.
Please don’t hate me,
rejecting and discarding my patience
as I happily tolerate our differences.
It’s perfectly great that I can love you
in spite of not believing in your faith,
or siding with your political views,
or your twisted ideas on sexuality
and how “some people” are an abomination
to this earth. You are entitled to these thoughts
and that’s more than fine for you
but I am entrusted with my very own core beliefs.
I have collected these hypothesis
through my journey, gathering what works for me
in a basket of compassion even to the slightest judgment
coming at me like a double-edge sword.
I’m a big girl now feeling rather comfy
with myself and how this new world has welcomed me
with open arms (even when you label me as insane or abnormal).
I can’t stand intolerance, bigotry, ignorance, discrimination,
stupidity, and faithless hatred while you stand for pseudo Christianity,
holding your beliefs up with a rigid Bible-belt and hypocritical suspenders.
I can say that loving you is a privilege regardless of our differences…
but to you it is the in-differences that challenge the feelings in your heart.
It would be a dull world if we all thought the same.
The beauty of these crevices that indent every part of our humanity
is the agreements in disagreeing and watching the world evolve
through all diversity. It’s a lovely truth:
to love one another without expecting to morph into one belief,
one idea, one thought, and one experience.
Ultimately the light that guides us is the one which lifts us to Spirit.
Let’s agree on that one point.
We are the totality of Divinity
regardless of your hesitations
to accept that which scares us to death.
We are all forms of faith, grace, truth…and Love.
In the end love should be what we can agree upon collectively!
