Painting by Casey Baugh

I am a Jewish woman
I am a “China girl”
I am a mixed race woman
I am a lesbian
I am feminist
I am a soldier
I am a mother
I am a dancer
I am a musician
And so forth.

Do theses labels tell
Something about me?

Do the labels matter?

A human being is not
A label.

Labels are a separator
Labels are a hate factory
Labels are meaningless

We all are human beings
On the road to nowhere
On the road to emptiness
