I'm sad.

Sometimes I'm very, very mad, but today I'm sad. I'm also tired. I'm tired of being wedged. I'm tired of being pitted against my fellow beings on this ride through the universe. I'm tired of there not being enough freedom, enough protection, enough health care, enough justice, for all of us. I'm tired of there not being enough Democracy for any of us. I'm tired.

ENDA. A great idea; great effort, but not quite enough for all of us. It seems to me that a long history of queer solidarity got us to where we now stand together. Equality. Protection. Pride. Must we ration?

It's about Human Rights.

Are we not but one?

One, by U2

Is it getting better?
Or do you feel the same?
Will it make it easier on you now?
You got someone to blame
You say

One love
One life
When it's one need
In the night
One love
We get to share it
Leaves you baby if you
Don't care for it

Did I disappoint you?
Or leave a bad taste in your mouth?
You act like you never had love
And you want me to go without
Well it's

Too late
To drag the past out into the light
We're one, but we're not the same
We get to
Carry each other
Carry each other

Have you come here for forgiveness?
Have you come to raise the dead?
Have you come here to play Jesus?
To the lepers in your head

Did I ask too much?
More than a lot.
You gave me nothing,
Now it's all I got
We're one
But we're not the same
Well we
Hurt each other
Then we do it again
You say
Love is a temple
Love a higher law
Love is a temple
Love the higher law
You ask me to enter
But then you make me crawl
And I can't be holding on
To what you got
When all you got is hurt

One love
One blood
One life
You got to do what you should
One life
With each other
One life
But we're not the same
We get to
Carry each other
Carry each other


We get to carry each other...
