The Right Question

They will train you to doubt yourself
and be disdainful of love.

They will teach you to be alien to
your own affections and body.

They will require you, as rite of
passage and admission to their
clubhouse, to look upon your
own tribe with shame.

They will submit you to demands
that suppress your truth and
support their fictions.

They will pretend that you
are not a part of the whole,
and make you invisible and mute.

They will lie and avoid and mask
in order to make of us what they

These things are all givens.
These ordeals have been survived
for centuries.

The only question is...
What will WE do?
