Author's Quotes

What is a friend?

A friend is someone

who knows your past,

believes in your future

and respects you today

for who you are.

A true friend

will do this unconditionally

My Angel

Sometimes God

creates Angels not meant for Heaven.

So he clips their wings

and sends them to earth.

I feel I know such and Angel

Why We Are Free

We are all part of one community,

which were our rights at birth;

and it is because of these rights that we are free.

What Is Beauty?

Beauty, is not all about what is shown on the outside;

For it is what a person shows from within.

For when it is shown, it is this inner beauty

that shows us the true person.

Transgend

I am but a cocoon in this vessel I share,

and it is only when I transgend;

do I become the butterfly that I was meant to be.

Acceptance

We all feel, that we must make a change to better ourselves;

and it is not for people to judge us.

For they should try and understand who we are,

and accept us for the choices we make.

Battles & Dreams

Never give up the battles you fight,

nor the wishes that you dream.

For it is with those battles, and those dreams;

which give us the strength to live.

Judgement

judge me for who I am,

and not for my past.

That is, if you have the rights to judge me at all.

Many Cultures & Gardens

We are many cultures,

in the many gardens we create;

as we fight to be recognised.

But at the end of the day,

We still have to be true to ourselves;

amidst all controvesty
