Extracts from Andrea's poem being me

too long I've been seeking
the essential truth of my being.
How I'd walk tall in the knowledge
I knew what life was about
....................

yet, I contend, every identity
expresses a facet of humanity,
potential in each;
for all sinner and saint,
straight and gay,
spinster or hitched,
muslim or atheist
are simple refractions
of the single being of reason
