You went to the '76 Olympic games to compete
there you were a superstar athlete

You enjoyed from that fortune and fame
and on the Wheaties box they put your name

You went on to live a comfortable life
with kids and a wife

But, for decades in the back of your mind
everything was not fine

So, you chose gender reassignment
to free your spirit from it's confinement

As a Black Man in America I know all about fighting for freedom
and look forward to the day we tell these pawns of Devil-we beat him

In life one of the hardest things to do
is to live everyday being-authentically you!!!!!
