From Meaning, To Reality (October 4, 2016)

Freedom
Is not
Just a word.

But
A human right.

To live your life
Without terror
Or fear.

Go to school
Without being abused
In any form.

To walk
Outside your home
Without being attacked
Or killed.

Sadly
Freedom is
A wishful dream
For many transpeople.

As we gather
On November 20th
To remember those
Who were killed.
