Beat Itude

blessed are the poor
blessed are the rich
earth is the domain of opposites

blessed are those who mourn

for they shall be comforted
blessed are those who laugh
for they shall mourn

blessed are the meek
they shall inherit the earth
blessed are the bold
they shall take it by force

blessed are those who hunger for truth

blessed are those who thirst for illusion
blessed are those whose single eye
sees no difference

blessed are the merciful
blessed are the severe


blessed are the peacemakers
blessed are the warriors
who protect your children


blessed are you when you are cursed
yours is the kingdom of heaven
blessed are you when you curse
yours is the mirror of sincerity

blessed are the pure in heart

for they shall see god
blessed are your impurities
for they are made of god's light

whose rain falls on the just

and the unjust alike
which is perfect justice

the only sin she will not forgive

is sleep
