Poem: Your Open Mind

Telling me you have an open mind makes you think

you are safe and that you will allow yourself to be friends with me.

I am a minority:

INTERSEX 

GENDER NONCONFORMING

GAY MAN 

With a friendly smile, you tell me you have no problem with how I live my life.

It made me worry about you though when you told me this.

Here is why….

Do you need to know that I accept who you are?  

You are the majority:

ENDOSEX

CISGENDER &

HETEROSEXUAL

Do you feel safe with me, or do you just assume it?

You do not know me or my story, I do not know yours.

Like you, maybe I did not have a choice but to be who I am. 

If I did not have a choice but to be born this way, am

I any different than you? 

I exist even if your mind is closed.

I exist even if you hate and reject my lifestyle and my culture.

If you had simply accepted me and loved me unconditionally

as a human being would there have been the need to share that you had an

open mind?

We EXIST even if your mind is closed
