Poem - Drawing Lines

“Drawing Lines” is about humanity's core concerns. The poem address identity, desires, and attractions. There is the inclination to label the unfamiliar as deviant or wrong. The truth of the matter is that the starting places are the same even though many destinations are reached. Accepting this is a stepping stone to accepting that the normative is a fluid proposition.


Drawing Lines

I am the same as you
seeking my integrity
where I draw my lines
in the sand of humanity
mirrors echo the shapes
defining reality
core of who we are
center of what we want

identity is a right
who I am deep within
regardless of masks outside
drawn by society
the spectrum is my guide
a pool to dive within
skipping private rocks
across the placid face

desires are manifest
arising from within
natural on the face
of the field of dreams
too numerous to count
infinite when we admit
that pleasure is in pain
humility found when lost

attractions are the tool
preface to closed doors
where I remove the guards
allow myself to be seen
I’ll seek those I love
based on who I’ll trust
appeal with lead them here
behind the veil of life

the mirror is not broken
these reflections are still true
even if the version of me
is not the same version of you
diversity becomes the norm
normative put aside
when I am same as you
drawing lines for myself.
