My Mothers Day Proclamation
Arise then... women of this day!
Arise, all women who have hearts!
Whether your baptism be of water or of tears!
Our homes and churches will be shelters
We will not live in fear
We will not engage the accepted path
Only to hold onto the white picket illusion
Acting as if perfection is an attainable goal
Shame be banished!
In words and deeds
We will not look away when our sisters cry
We will look them in their tear filled eyes
Even when this highlights our hidden fears
We will not live as if our children are meant to be anything other than
A tinted reflection of His kingdom in a fractured world
We will hold loosely in love and nurture fully
Nurturing whatever/ whoever is placed beside us
Clinging to the whole knowledge of His planned justice
We will release those we care for into His better than arms
While offering our own less than arms as sacrifice
Living peace filled lives
Speaking with clear voices
In the name of womanhood and humanity, I earnestly ask
For you to listen
