Gender

We are what we are,

Or are not.                                                                                                                            We are fluid as air and water…                                                                                        Elastic.

We can be one way,                                                                                            Then another.                                                                                                             Grow into ourselves over time…                                                                                  Expand.

We are shape-shifters,                                                                                                   Dream catchers.                                                                                                        People who take risks…                                                                                                   Courageous.

We are you, we are me                                                                                                         We are us,                                                                                                                        Bound together by hope,                                                                                                     And understanding.

Night & Day Dreams

How do I reach you?

Tell me, how do I?

You have vanished

Before my eyes.

 

Does this mean it’s too

painful, too pointless, too late

For you to want to

Listen to me?

 

I have to tell you, that

I’m dreamy, still dreamy, so dreamy

With Love and longing

For you

 

That’s why I’m waiting,

Just thinking, just hoping, just dreaming

That I’ve become

Invisible too
