I am not a category

I am different, yet we are the same.

Please, do not lump me in a category

because you lack awareness.

Please, see me as an individual

with ideas and thoughts of my own.

Please, do not build a wall

to keep me in or keep me out because of your fear.

Instead, keep the Gate open

and your arms outstretched.

Accept me, and together

we will build a better world.
