To the People

Thank you

to the people

to the person who carries me

to the one who lifts me up

when the world beats me down

Thank you

for the shoulders

who catch my tears

and hear my cries

Thank you

to the strangers

who give me a voice

even when I can't speak for myself

Thank you

to the country

that I cannot serve

but houses the allies 

that protect me

Thank you 

to the privileged

to the leaders of our country

who give me challenges to face

that will let me come out

stronger than before 

Thank you 

to the Trans* people like me

who reminds me

that I don't  have to face 

oppression alone

Thank you

to the people

who stand in unity

and for you

I am ever grateful 

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
My community
My country
Our world
