Do not allow yourself

to be defined

or guided

or labeled

or maligned

by your sexuality

your age

your birthplace

or your race

or the proud colour

of your face.


Do not allow yourself

to be judged, measured

or explained

by the dead hand

of tradition

or by the racist misogyny

of religion

or by the empty


of others

and what they want

to see.


For you

are you

and only you.




and free.
