To Be Counted–a poem

Diana sent me one of her poems. Thought you would enjoy it.

To Be Counted

There is a right of passage.

That we all share in common.

Whether you are gay,

Or lesbian,

Or bisexual,

Or transgendered.

When at one time or other,

You must step forward,

And declare,

What your inner voice tells you.

To step over the line,

To be counted.

To stand tall.

    It resonated with me, too. Thanks, Diana! Yes, there’s truth in the poem – and a challenge.
