I Did Nothing….

Her smile showing
You not knowing.
Your hate showing.
Her dark skin glowing.
Your ire growing.
Are you sure?

You follow her.
You hate her.
She’s changed you.
She’s challenged you. 
Just by walking past.
With her dark skin glowing
And her smile showing.

You think you know. 
The challenge.
As you hit her, 
You realise.
It wasn’t what you thought.

As her blood runs down.
As her life ebbs.
The look in her eyes
Was defiance.

You fall.
You sit.
Realisation
Won’t quit.

A trans woman
died by your hand.
The realisation came too late…
She was human too.

I stand there.
My phone in my hand..
