A Prayer for Leelah

Eternal Mother

Take this lost child

Who has given up on this world

Save her from those who wish to fix what is not broken

Let her live in your loving acceptance

 

God of Light

Shine onto the truth for her tormentors

Show them their own cruelties

Make their eyes burn with their own pettiness

And their attempts to control instead of love

 

Sisters, Brothers, Lovers, Children

Hold each other close

Treasure our selves and treasure the process of discovery

Protect one another

 

Today we cry

Today we remember

Today she lives
