Are they not one amongst us,
Who share equal rights to live!
Then why don’t we treat them like us?
Instead, leave them behind to grieve!
Every now and then, they are forced to
Fight for their own existence!
Are they not humans like us?
Then, why do we show so much resistance!
We always tend to judge them,
On their choice of sexuality!
Why it’s so offensive if they choose to,
Face and accept their life’s reality?
Our eyes pop up everytime
We see them crossing a street!
As if an alien has landed up in front,
And is all set to pounce on us, to eat!
We make them part of our celebrations,
When we are in need of their blessings!
Then why we make them go through humiliation,
And invite upon us, their cursing’s?
Dear society be delighted to know,
They are the blessing in disguise!
There is nothing wrong to be a transgender
Their grace lies in the beholders’ eyes!
