Everyone deserves


in all their delightful

shapes and colours and forms,

deserves the right

to be what

they want to be,

and to become what

they ought

to become,

and to break out of

the deadening expectations

of those who

wish to control,

and smash through

the walls of

small and pitiful minds,

and find beyond

those confines

the joy of discovery,

and the power of lives

filled with

striving without barriers

and unrepentent urgings

towards everything

and all that is

possible and impossible.
