The Beatitudes For Darfur

*thank you Karla

Blessed are the massacred
Blessed are the raped and tortured
Blessed are the burned alive
Blessed are those who have died at the machete's blade
Blessed are the displaced and homeless
blessed are those too traumatized to speak
blessed are the dismembered and disfigured
Blessed are the haunted witnesses to slaughter
blessed are the orphaned
blessed are the childless
Blessed are the widows
Blessed are the waiting, the ignored, and the forgotten.

Yours is the kingdom.
