Luke 22:14 – 23:56

A mother of a transgender child responds to her judgmental neighbor:

this sadness I feel
is for you sad one
you are so lost
yet want to save me

this anger I feel
is for you angry one
your screams suffocate
your silent stillness

this loss I feel
is for you lost one
your call still beckons
yet I embrace mine

this confusion I feel
is for you confused one
you believe the illusion
that we are not equals

this concern I feel
is for you concerned one
you try to separate us
yet our source is the same

this calm I feel
in spite of you crazed one
you search frantically
and only find your own fear

this love I feel
is for you God’s beloved
you hate those like me
who accept their journey
