Prioritize Identity

Question MarkCategorize and rank, that’s something
People like to do

So are you human first? Or are you
Gender? Race? Or you?

Are you a creed? A party?
Or some sort of preference?

Are you defined by money?
To whom you show deference?

Are you a cause? Relationship?
A job or a career?

Or are you determined by
The things you hold most dear?

Are you a college major?
Style of clothes? A type of car?

Or has someone else the power
To say just who you are?

Prioritize identities
That’s what we need to do

There is no “we” to fix things
If we’re not first “me” and “you”
