Litany of Love — Zach Ford, UK

‘We stand for…’, a Litany of Love

We do not stand against,
We stand for:

Love, inclusion, life, and dignity,
Offering a hand to those in need,
Or a shoulder to those who weep.

We do not stand against,
We stand with:

The fearful, the oppressed,
The rebels and truth-tellers,
Those who take action.

We do not stand against,
We stand for:

More truth, more justice,
The right to be yourself,
To choose, deny, or claim.

We do not stand against,
We stand as:

Lovers, parents, children,
Accountants and word-weavers,
The numberless priesthood,
Of unending love.
