Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep | A-Trans-Comic
[id: A vertical comic in mostly black on white.
First panel: "Do not stand at my grave and weep" over a short person with a round hair bun saying a blue male symbol to a frowning woman with folded arms and wrinkles by her mouth.
< br />
Second panel: "I am not there." The woman is walking away left, crying light blue tears and saying a pink X over the blue male symbol and then four pink female symbols, as the short person reaches after her in distress.
Third panel: "I do not sleep." The person from before is laying in bed miserable and awake with hair spread out over a pillow.
Fourth line: Two taller panels side-by-side. The left shows the person falling through clouds, with the text "I am a thousand winds that blow." The right is closer and shows them crying light blue tears with arms out trying to brace, with the text "I am the diamond glints on snow."
Fifth panel: "I am the sunlight on ripened grain." In the middle of two lines of text is a close-up of their crying face with light blue tears streaming upward and hair blowing up cut short by the edges of the panel. "I am the gentle autumn rain."
Sixth line: Two panels side-by-side. The left shows a person startling awake with a short tuft of hair atop their head. The words "When you awaken" align with the right panel's "in the morning's hush," which has them sitting up in bed with a hand to their chest.
Seventh panel: "I am the swift uplifting rush" is to the left of them pulling on a binder before the text finishes "of quiet birds in circled flight.
Eighth panel: "I am the soft stars that shine at night." In the foreground a phone is buzzing light blue vibration lines, catching the person's attention from far right.
Ninth line: Above three small panels reads "Do not stand at my grave and cry." The first panel shows a text from Mom saying "Hi pink female symbol!" The second shows the person looking sadly at the phone, and the third shows them walking determinedly away from the phone.
Tenth panel: An extra large panel shows a crowd. "I am not there" is left of the main character standing tall waving a giant trans flag, wearing a large trans flag cape, smiling big and shouting a blue male symbol over the text "I did not die."
