Just discovered this poem which I posted  a long while ago as a comment on a blog post about diversity in the church.

I am white
I am a woman
I am a white woman
too distracted by her own exclusion
to include another
to reach out
to reach down
to see
to really see the invisible people
I live in a world
where white still has the power
I need to share
the spotlight
pass the mic
open the door
stoop down  
to the whispers
to the songs
to the heartbreak
I am a white women
and I thirst for color
rainbows and rainbows of color
rainbows and rainbows of color
painting the canvas of heaven
with rainbows and rainbows of color
