We all share this place,
Yet we all act like it’s ours.
Leave space for others.
See God in your enemy,
And plan your move accordingly.
For That which gives you life and light
Gives the same to those you fight.
No person is without this mark,
So honor that inherent spark,
And act with love you would receive,
And give no persons cause to grieve.
What you would have, so you must give,
If we would dare to hope to live.
How can we give lesser worth
To those Queens who gave us birth?
How can we dare to pay them less,
Yet load them up with extra stress?
How can we their bodies chide,
Expecting to be let inside?
How can we their beauty doubt
And shush their voices with our clout?
When at last will we all see
That there’s but one humanity?
Man or woman, trans or cis
We can do better than this.
Find ways to connect
To humanity’s spirit
And see with new eyes
