Everyday, every hour, every way I turn reminds me about
the days, the ways, the people who paved
this path so I can walk on

I now have the right walk and breathe the same breath as she, he and finally me
no longer the beast, the enemy, a renewed identity.

Head held high, walking in a straight line thanks to those who dare to be
something that most like us are scared to dream.

We've come so far, so far from the lynches of William and the yes master please
now we can just officially be you and me.

We are now together as a we
Me. She. He. Be. Finally

Nothing more nothing less but very much greater and every much gained
from then to now the train shall ride into the future of everlasting equality.
