Red-headed Stepchildren

This is for the ones who don’t fit in–
The “red-headed stepchildren”,
The “misfits”, the “ugly”, and “malformed”,
Those who’ve been boxed up and labeled
And placed on a shelf.
Unwanted, rejected, and belittled
By men of “knowledge” and wealth.
Do you not know, have you not heard,
G-d has chosen “foolish things”
To confound the wise of this world?
He’s revealed the hidden things
Of the Kingdom to little children,
For man looks at the outward appearance,
but G-d looks at the heart within.
The last shall be made first
And the first shall be last.
Those who sow in tears will reap in joy;
They shall eat the good of the Land.
They will be lifted up in that Day,
By the Holy One’s Right Hand.
