Here is a poem I wrote. I was tryiong to capture the whole gay community when I wrote it.


Whatever happened to fairness and equality

Am I not human like all of you

Do I not have feelings just like you

Yes?

By the way you look at me I wouldn’t say I do

Because I’m gay you treat me like I have some contagious disease

To you I’m nothing more than a worm upon the sidewalk

Meant nothing but to be stomped and trampled upon by millions

I too have feelings although you may not know it

Sometimes you’ll beat us to the ground and even that isn’t enough for you

You’ll pistol whip us and kick us while we’re down

And then when we’re barely breathing you’ll tie us to a fence and just leave us for dead in the cold night

You call us fags because you don’t think it hurts us

Well it does just like it would hurt you to be called fat, dumb and ugly

I don’t have to take this crap at all

I refuse to let you beat us around anymore

Your reign of supremacy is no more

I’m standing up for myself now

Whether you accept me for who I am

Or launch a barrage of negativity whenever you see me

That’s your choice

I cannot tell you what to believe

Nor do I wish to

I just hope I can influence you
You might not want to believe it but
I’m queer and here to stay
