 "Sunset over the Pulaski Skyway"
I swim against a prodigious current,
and I know that I must falter.
It draws me towards the fall,
the inexorable, fatal plunge.

But each stroke I take,
I count a small victory,
a stand.
For my right to exist.
For the betterment of the world.
For those who came before me.

And for everyone
who has ever screamed
defiantly at the heavens:
"No! There is a better way!"

For them,
For us,
I swim against the current,
because I am right.
