I see myself under a name

A title to call myself

Something to stand with

To pledge my support

My identity to


But should I openly stand under this banner

Should I wear my uniform

In the supermarket?

To show who I am

To a group

Who may not even accept me

As one of their own


If I did this

Would I be stopped

And asked for my ID

Asked for my verification


That I deserve such an honor

To say I carry

Such a prestigious name


Is it good enough

To carry it only

In my heart and mind

And label myself as much


“You do you”

I do I
