In wider culture
my impairments, attractions, ancestry
mark me as weak, marginal, less.

But I have been enlightened.
Instructed by fellow rebels
in the art of defiance.

From awareness,
comes realization
that each body/soul/essence
is not only designed to
survive, but thrive
and teach coming generations
as we were taught.

We must continue
work of unceasing forbearers
to work, to strive, to challenge.

Even as we
push our own way
on the path they began
as we come up, outward, and through
to continue building
a more perfect union.
