May God bless you





May God bless you with discomfort
at easy answers, half truths, superficial relationships,
so that you will live deep within your heart.

May God bless you with anger
at injustice, oppression and exploitation of people,
so that you will work for justice, equality and peace.

May God bless you with tears
to shed for those who suffer from pain, rejection, starvation and war,
so that you will reach out your hand to comfort them and change their pain into joy.

And may God bless you with the foolishness
to think that you can make a difference in the world,
so that you will do the things which others tell you cannot be done.
