Here's to the mother who never cared

The brother and sister who wouldn't share


Here's to the teachers who never asked

The students and peers who always passed


Here's to the man who sat on the road

The homeless and weak who cracked the code


Here's to the animals who sat by my side

The big and small ones who held me as I cried


Here's to the father who wanted to know why

The nieces and nephews who waved goodbye


Here's to the counselors who wanted to hear

The faculty and staff who shed not a tear


Here's to the woman who grasped the hard truth

The doctor and nurse who labeled my papers “Ruth”


Here's to the teddy who grasped my hand

The lions and tigers who could understand


Here's to the bully who prayed for my death

The mean and cruel who still called me “Seth”


Here's to the people who prayed not for me

The good and evil whose 'morals' I couldn't see


Here's to the gates who opened their arms

The angels and guardians who meant no harm


Here's to the God who opened his heart

The lord and savior who watched me fall apart

Here's to the silence.
