This is a poem for all the Lesbians
In Chechnya, Nigeria, Libya, Burma.
Who become invisible to save their lives,
Or, are considered not worth reporting.
This is a poem for the brave Lesbians
Who stand up. Stand out. Are out.
Who will not remain hidden,
Wherever in the world they may be.
This is a poem for all those Women,
Who dare to love another woman.
Who open up their bodies and minds,
To the transformational power of love.
This is a poem for those of us,
Who are proud to call themselves Lesbian
Who reach out and nurture others
Who hold the whole world in their hands.
