Denial of Freedom

What the hell is Trans-gender?
Who are the judges appointed 
To send these children into the dark
Without so much as a flashlight?

Why do the innocents have to suffer 
For the ignorance of their elders
For the unconscious majority
Of the planet's population?

It is the way of the future
Our children will live there
With their genders identified
As an evolutionary process continues.

We question with furrowed eyebrows
We look with curiosity
We love unconditionally
We accept with faith.

Some of us will cry 
For not understanding sooner
For allowing the suffering 
That ended with suicide.

Some of us will understand
Before it's too late
That we hold the healing light
And the power of choice.

    I suppose it all takes time. I've been alive for 80 years and, glad to say, we've overcome a lot of ugly bias. Your poem is a welcome sight. Congrats. Love, daver

    I still think this one should be in USA Today. The same people who judge these kids sit in church on Sunday and believe they are the only ones that God created correctly. Maybe it's time they took their heads out of their indignant a$$es and tried a little compassion and understanding. Sorry, you got me on a roll this morning. Congrats on finally being featured. God Bless. Vince
