No Ban on Humanity (a poem)

You can’t ban me from being;
     I am not illegal.
You cannot tell me 
     I am less than equal.
You’ll never convince me
     my existence is inconsequential.
For this breath that fills me,
     it is eternal.
This breath contains power;
     I am beyond mortal.

I will never cease;
     I will always be.
The plans devised by men
     won’t strip my humanity.
What you fear
     isn’t my singularity.
What you fear
     is called eternity. 
I am fierce;
     I will always be
  — bshivers
