Progress Springs From Action

Written by  Merrick Moses

It seems
Like to the left and to the right
We are falling
Like the leaves in autumn
The brainwashed and fearful
Deride our existence

But God says otherwise
We are here for reasons
Unknown to anyone but the Universe
That One Verse
From which all comes
We are the bridge people
Between man and woman
Agender, Demigender
Transgender
We are here
And our numbers grow
Like the swelling of the tide
Multiples shells on the sea shore

 

There is no accident
That our lives are used
By craven predators
To get votes and pass laws
The wicked need a distraction
For the masses
To obscure their intentions
Of inhumanity
And robbery
We are the alarm sounding the cry
The sirens of a new day
In which people of all walks
Bathe in the light of dignity
Enjoy the pleasures of liberty
We walk on
Thru trial and travail
Forging paths
For generations to come
As who they truly are
And ever will be

Progress comes from action
Our progress is beyond
letter of law
Or script of pen
Progress is found
In our humanization
Our own acknowledgement
That the patchwork quilt
Of humanity’s life
Cannot shine without
The gender variant
There is no rainbow
No brilliant light
Without the gleam
Of trans rights
