Blessed are those who are persecuted
because of righteousness
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven
Abandoned and marginalized,
it’s difficult to bear bias,
harder to endure injustice
to suffer inequality.
Thus, disregarded by blind eyes,
marginalized, and abandoned
the consigned, to the dung heap, hope
for delayed gratification.
Uprightness demands commitment,
truth always asks for sacrifice
and guards blamelessness constantly,
yes, justice can be elusive.
Walking the selfless courage path
entails optimistic patience
and advances the sustained strength
of eternal restoration.
Those who are mistreated
enjoy eternal bliss.
 Matthew 5: 10
