I DON’T NEED …

I don’t need you to understand why I am Gay
I don’t need you to understand what it is like to live in my skin
I don’t need you to understand how I am a woman trapped in a man’s body
I don’t need you to understand why I love both men and women
I don’t need you to be tolerant of the way I was born
I don’t need you to understand that I come from a poor region in my country and I am looking for a better life in your country
I don’t need you to know what I went through to escape torture in my homeland
I don’t need you to know what it is like to be raped
I don’t need you to know what it is like to be elderly and trying to get by
I don’t need you to understand what it is like to have been a slave
I don’t need you to know what it is like to have been verbally and physically abused
I don’t need you to know what it is like to go hungry day after day
I don’t need you to know what it is like to be homeless
I don’t need you to understand how it feels to be hated just because of the color of my skin
I don’t need you to remember that your ancestors were once immigrants looking for a better life just like I am now
I do not expect you to know, feel, or understand any of this
WHAT DO I NEED?

COMPASSION FOR YOUR FELLOW MAN

Walk the talk of the man you revere ‘Jesus Christ’

Stone Cross sits in the Chapel Graveyard on the estate of Vaughan Family in Carmarthenshire, Wales.  It was the ancestral home of the Vaughan line on my father’s side.
