This is Your Cross to Bear:

Going to Your Bible Study,
Going to Your Church,

Sitting Beside the Human
God gave You to Love,

Using the Pronouns
God gave You to Use,

Refusing to give into
The same Hate

Your “Siblings in Christ”
Show You.

This is Your Gospel:

God loves You.
And Your Partner.
And Your Pronouns.

God Loves
The way He made You,
Which is just this way.

God Loves.
And He Loves.
And He Loves.

-A Queer Christian Note to Self

(ps- this is not intended to motivate anyone to out themselves before the time God has planned for them to be ready. You will get to where God wants you to be eventually, whether or not that means being out)
