We are whole just as we areAnd we will go where our truth callsWe may not know just where the path goesBut we’re coming home to who we are
Thanks for your love, but I don’t need your worryIf you think you know what’s better for meIt’s good to learn to trust myself & feel safe to be myselfWith support from community
Our ancestors wouldn’t want us to sufferThey would want us to thriveAnd when we find what brings us joy & meaningThey’d shep naches [feel pride] for our lives
Please don’t make me into a symbolAnd I will try not to flatten you eitherWe are infinitely complex creaturesAnd we deserve to be known
