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
