May you be blessed

I know, I know. Not the type of thing I usually think/blog about, but in this case we’ll all just make an exception, okay.

May you be blessed…
With discomfort at easy answers,
Half-truths, and superficial relationships,
So that you will live
Deep in your heart.

May you be blessed
With anger at injustice, oppression, and
Exploitation of people and the earth
So that you will work for
Justice, equity, and peace.

May you be blessed
With tears to shed for those who suffer
So you will reach out your hand
…To comfort them and
Change their pain into joy.

And may you be blessed
With the foolishness to think
That you can make a difference in the world,
So you will do the things
Which others say cannot be done.
