Today my heart is with #istanbulpride and the brave people who are participating in it! Everyone should have the freedom to be who they are and the freedom to love who they love!
I think that it's basic human rights! 💙💜💛
I show my support and solidarity!
My poem: Draw the lines
Little by little, inch by inch.
Fear takes control over your life,
limiting your freedom, paralysing you.
It can creep up on you slowly,
give you a sudden shock,
make your heart beat fast!
Fear controls you, if you let it.
If you let it, what will it do to you?
Lock the doors, don't go out?
Then fear has won over you.
Fear does not give up willingly,
an enemy in itself, so push it away!
Fight back, stand your ground.
Draw the lines, on paper and in the air.
Block the attacks, protect yourself.
Use your words, your voice, your body.
Fight for your life, your right to exist,
to be yourself.
Fight for your freedom, in your home,
in the streets where you walk!
Never give up, until you die!
