YØU CAN'T KILL US

by HIRS

/
1.
You think you're the reason we exist? It's quite the opposite. There's not one thing we do that concerns you. You're not a part of this and you won't be and you can't be. We're not for you.
2.
One by one you're trying to kill us off. You can't erase us. Coming out of closets and into the streets. Arming ourselves to the teeth. You can't kill us.
3.
As a trans woman staying alive is the hardest thing to do. I'm trying to keep a promise. If i can't stay alive for myself; i'll try to do it for you. No more patience and no more talks. No more transphobes escaping us. No empathy for ignorance. We'll show no mercy if you come after us. every day is trans day of vengeance.
4.
It might be out of spite but i will not kill myself. i will stay alive. No one's going to kill me including myself. I'm going to live forever. The headline will read "Trans woman dies of old age." She outlived her enemies. Homophobes rolling in their graves.
5.
You want to shame me and try to kill me. You want to make my sisters say my name. Don't you touch me and don't you think i won't make your obituary read "Murdered by a woman." We're gonna live forever. We're gonna live…
