The Light of Respect

These garments of choice have made me free

They keep me flying they keep me standing with dignity

My soul is complete, strong and unique

Maybe against the roaring currents you see me as weak

Take a moment to see me as a being

A vital part of the community – see me as I am seeing

I will not wrong you by judging you

Do me the honor and give me the same courtesy

My light and my guidance

Is not only outer but an inner radiance

It is not merely a clothe or a cover

But a symbol for respect towards myself and each other

I believe this is the truest form of beauty

My right to love and preserve my body and soul with dignity
