Allied in Action

What does it mean to be allies, in this day and age why is there still injustice left to fight?

Why to each other we must bind, gather formation in a line, pray to who you hold most divine

That our community will be alright

All rise, for allegiance to a flag we must pledge

Why does adding black and brown to the rainbow make so many people red?

Instead, we must practice what we preach

Honor differences in each other, it’s what makes us all unique

I speak, from experience of indifference within the black lesbian community

Where words can shred each other apart, instead we need to hold in unity

I act in honor of my brother who is trans

For awareness of our right to identity

You’re not entitled to tell me who I am

I am layers upon layers of minority

Dispositioned to more risks than who we call majority

Learning to love more of me

And by me I mean every one of you fam

Because injustice in the smallest of corners can spread across the whole land
