I’m your brother, and sister
I’m both Mrs and Mister
I’m Gay, Bi, Trans, Non-binary.
I’m your father and mother,
Husband, Auntie, friend and lover.
I’m different…and the same
I am your family
I’m black, white, pink…every hue.
Christian, Moslem, Buddhist…Jew
Skinhead, Goth, Punk, New Romantic
I am me. I am you
I’m your district nurse, your teacher,
The boy and girl next door
Someone in the street
I am your neighbour
I'm no better than you, no worse
No richer, poorer, blessed or cursed.
Just part of the same Gravitational Wave,
