DoTR: Building Hope (November 19, 2019)

We gather
On November 20th
Day of Transgender Remembrance.

Through the darkness
Candles are lit
Naming our murdered
Brothers and sisters.

But realistically knowing
The killings won't stop
Until society's attitude changes.

Treating everyone
With respect and dignity.

Of gender identification
And ethnicity.

Call me
A delusional dreamer
For believing this.

In leaving ignorance
And prejudices behind.
