Psalm 123

Because I am just about out of euphemisms for bullshit.

I know you want me to cheer up and see the way going up according to you.

But what and where is that better day and time for people like me who are not the highly favored or high on the European/Phallocentric/Wealth socioeconomic paradigm that dominates and crushes the oppressed other in every single social setting and context where we exist?

I am truly marginalized and invisible, but for the Grace of God.

Swipe the dust from that Bible you snarl at and understand why I see you as you really are, and why I trust in the Lord to protect me from those who use and abuse the oppressed ‘others’ like me.

Or just read it here:

I lift up my eyes to you,
    to you who sit enthroned in heaven.
As the eyes of slaves look to the hand of their master,
    as the eyes of a female slave look to the hand of her mistress,
so our eyes look to the Lord our God,
    till he shows us his mercy.

Have mercy on us, Lord, have mercy on us,
    for we have endured no end of contempt.
We have endured no end
    of ridicule from the arrogant,
    of contempt from the proud.
