Part One of a triptych (blue/white) by Three Flying Piglets
I’m your brother and sister,
I’m both Mrs and Mister,
I am Gay, Bi and Transsexual,
I am… myself.
I’m your father and mother,
Husband, auntie, friend and lover,
I’m different…and the same,
I am your family.
I’m black, white, pink… every hue,
Christian, Muslim, Buddhist… Jew,
Skinhead, Goth, Punk, New Romantic,
I am me. I am you.
I’m your district nurse, your teacher,
The boy and girl next door,
Someone in the street,
I am your neighbour.
I’m no better than you, or no worse,
No richer, poorer, blessed or cursed,
Just part of the same Gravitational Wave,
As you are.
