The building blocks of my life are no longer in place. Cruel people, cruel fate have torn them apart. Cruel phobias dashed those hand-chosen blocks on each other. My dreams are shattered by homophobia.

Lend me an artist's eye to picture stone art in those broken building blocks. Help me pick up the pieces. Give me the strength to put them together, to form a new dream. Make the broken pieces something more whole. Create out of my brokeness a beauty all will admire.

Amen
