Orlando (Trigger Warning)

They hate us…

       For who we love

       For how we dress

       For how we exist

But love is greater than hate.

 

They kill us…

        With guns

        With fists

        With words

But love is greater than hate.

 

Blood splatters the dance floor

Bodies litter the sidewalks

Cell phones ring, unanswered

Someone’s son will never go home again

 

But death is not greater than faith.

 

Your brothers and sisters mourn you.

We lift you up to your final resting place.

 

And love is greater.

We pray for peace, not vengeance

Not hate.
