    In Memoriam. A poem for Transgender Day of Remembrance

    With acknowledgements to Laurence Binyon’s First World War poem “For the Fallen” from which the author borrowed some lines.

    We will remember them
    We will remember them
    Words borrowed; but meaning just the same
    We will remember them.
    At the going down of the sun and in the evening
    As we gather in memoriam
    Remembering our dead
    Those so cruelly murdered
    Those who died in fear and pain.

    We shall remember you
    Those who are named
    And the countless ones unknown
    Killed because of hate
    Killed because of ignorance
    Killed because of what they were
    Who died in fear and pain.
    And we remember those
    As by their own hand they left us.
    Because of what they were
    Because of what was done to them
    Because of what they suffered
    They could take no more.

    We will remember you.
    We who live salute you
    We will keep you in our hearts
    We’ll build monuments to your memory
    And light candles to your lives.
    We shall not forget you
    For We will strive
    To overcome the hate
    To overcome the ignorance
    To overcome abuse and barriers put in place.

    So release the doves of peace
    And let them fly
    Spread the message far and wide
    We will stand tall
    We will stand proud
    We’ll take no more hate
    We’ll take no more abuse and death!
