Won’t Be Broken

I’ve already faced the demons

From the playground to the am dial

Been fencing with the crooked laws

Finding work arounds

I’ve had to sneak my kisses

Try to pass

Keep on building bridges

I won’t be broken

Won’t be half a citizen

I won’t be broken

Won’t be half a citizen

I wear the colors

Speak the coded language of my tribe

I’ve got a few tattoos that indicate

My disdain for hate

There’s a liberation for every generation

and steady, mark, I’m taking mine

I won’t be broken

Won’t be half a citizen

I won’t be broken

Won’t be half a citizen

Serve with honor

March with pride

Pay your taxes

Find a lover

Find a Bride

Now step aside?

I won’t be broken

Won’t be half a citizen

This song is inspired by the beautiful people and stories that touched me as a participant in the National Equality March.  Get educated, get involved.  GLBTQ Rights NOW!

    Wow. This is powerful. Chelsea faced a lot of interesting people in Greeley last week and was faced with people trying to turn anti-hatred laws into legalizing abuse. I told her she should talk to you, as I am sure you encountered many of these arguments. I’ll talk to you soon.
