Who We Are
Visibility has its place
a time to share who we are
alignment along the middle way
away from ends of left and right
desire comes in many forms
there’s not one template to explain
or the two that some embrace
instead the spectrum is in play.
Myths are spun by outsiders
made from dogma held in books
without a face put to words
it’s too easy to damn strangers
for encounters singly had
with a stamp ascribed by chance
by human nature had by all
on a segment now despised.
Against the stones of ignorance
and the scorn of similars
coming out is a choice
by the brave who bare themselves
this vision asks for nothing less
than acceptance given by
those on ends of left and right
calm assent of who we are.
