I Praise

You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing… that I might sing praises and not be silent.

-Psalm 30:11-12


They praise the flat stomach, perky boobs and flawless make up.

I praise authenticity, true laughter, no make and no filter.


They praise the aesthetically pleasing, the art of moderation and delicacy.

I praise the messy and bold- the unapologetic.


They praise degrees, houses and vacations.

I praise travelling, home and education.


They praise the extraordinary celebrity success.

I praise the ordinary miracles.


And whilst they praise gods that thrive on hypocrisy and segregation,

I praise a God of life, love and liberation.
