Labels to confine
To divide society
To humiliate the spirit

But we are not labels
We are everything
From a gust of wind
To the vibrations of the drums

Creating stigmas to belittle
Causing doubt to control

Your ignorance is not our truths
You and I are one and the same
No domain over me
I am everything
From the depths of the oceans
To stars so bright

I am white black yellow red brown
A rainbow of colors
That you cannot define
I am me no labels no stigmas!

    I really liked this one. We are not labels, we are just us and it is up to us to be more than just a label or what society codes us to be.
