be silent….

We do not want you here,

your words are too challenging,

they make us uneasy,

you hold up a mirror to our souls,

you demand that we see differently,

but that is not our desire,

not our perspective

and our directive for you is silence,

silence and shame,

yours, you see is the blame

and we didn’t ask for your opinion….

we don’t ask for opinions

that are not ours,

so it is not just you that we silence,

but any who don’t fit,

don’t have our wit or wisdom…

no we do not want you here,

discomforting the comfortable,

pointing out privilege

that we cannot help but own…

so we will stand for our rights,

not yours,

we will speak up for our ways,

claim the high ground…

we do not want you here…

be silent…

be silent….

About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, 2 lovely granddaughters and 2 lovely grandsons). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off! I love walking, swimming and photography, I dabble with paint and poetry...
