I am sharing this beautiful poem, written by my friend Claire. A poem that she read at the TRUK United FC vigil for Brianna Ghey last night.
The vigil was very powerful.
🏳️⚧️We stood in the darkness, by The Thames.
🏳️⚧️We stood in the cold. We stood together to mourn a teenager murdered because of hate.
My Trans friends had long predicted this would happen.
I dont know if Claire’s poem has a title, but I do know that it is exquisite.
The words so beautiful, they touched my heart, my soul, and made me cry.
I hope Claire contines to write and share her words.
“Do not judge a biography by it’s length,
Nor by the number of pages in it.
Judge it by the richness of it’s contents
Sometimes those unfinished are among the most poignant
Do not judge a song by it’s duration
Nor by the number of it’s notes
Judge it by the way it touches and lifts the soul
Sometimes those unfinished are among the most beautiful.
And when something has enriched your life
And when it’s melody lingers on in your heart
Is it unfinished?
Or is it endless?”
