We are water, air, and matter.
Blood, bone, sinew and flesh.
Electrical impulses
We are dust and ashes.

We’re all the same under our skin
Bleed the same color blood.
Cry, happy or sad, salt tears.
Have hopes and dreams.

We’re lucky to be alive, dead lucky.
Hostage to fate and fortune.
Gay, lesbian, bi, trans, straight, nonbinary.
We are nature and nurture.

We’re both the same and different.
Frightened, frail, and disillusioned.
Brave, bold, and beautiful.
We are….. A community.
