You serve as
something more
than a role model
to me –

All you ask is that
I choose who I

Wish
to
be.

From ’89 to 2011
you have been
with me

Through the arduous
paths of ‒

Hell
And
Heaven.

My power forward
during these
dark days,

My head linesman
guarding me from
the hate,

Your protection
solid as a shield ‒

Yet
softer
than
lace.

Regardless if
my dreams are
ghost towns,

You imbue them
with the life
and laughter of ‒
Carnaval.

If I experience six
days of “not me,”
on the seventh day,

You’ll bring me
back to complete.

Though I am
pained by society’s
stone cold grip
I’m a Survivor,

As you
chisel it.

What I take comfort
in the most ‒

Is that with
every sigh ‒

You’ll always be
there to ask,
“So tell me why?”
