Heavenly Mother’s words to Her queer children

by Charlotte Scholl Shurtz

My children, you are perfectly
created in my image. Your queerness
is beautiful and good. I love you. 

I invite you to love freely,
for to love and to be loved
is a gift most precious. 

I bless you with wisdom to trust
discriminately and to discern
those who support you as I do.

I give you my courage
to borrow as you learn
to advocate for yourself.

I bless you to learn
to love yourself and live
without inhibition.

I promise to always cry, rage,
mourn, grieve, celebrate, dance,
and rejoice with you in life.

And finally, beloved children,
listen to your heart and your spirit
for they will lead you back to me.
