I Stand (a poem)

I Stand
(a poem)
No need to wonder 
where I stand. 
I stand 
with and for humanity; 
the humanity of each one.
No matter 
the labels 
they choose to wear or
the labels 
often thrust upon them . . .
gender,
sex,
orientation,
identity,
race,
ethnicity,
creed,
social location.
I will never do it perfectly.
I surely will often fail,
but I will always try
to stand 
with and for humanity –
yours,
hers,
theirs,
his,
and
mine.
