Identity – a poem

In honor of Pride Month, I wrote this poem.

He, she, her, him, they, them
Arguments over semantics
Overshadow the people beneath
Overshadow the identities
crying and Screaming to crawl to the surface

He, she, her, him, they, them
simple words – pronouns
that hold the Weight of a person
their Truth, their Life,
their Hopes and Dreams

He, she, her, him, they, them
Arguments over semantics
when Everybody deserves
the space for I, Me, My
and any way they
Choose to Identify
