Every day
People face the hardships of being gay.
Why does it have to be a struggle?
If this was the wizarding world they’d be muggles.

In 1964 segregation ended.
Doesn’t that mean inclusion is intended?
Integration isn’t just about blacks and whites
it’s about basic human rights.

Man, woman, black,white.
Gay isn’t on that list and that just ain’t right.
Being gay is a sin
at least that’s the way things have been.
You say homophobia is the word of god
and quite honestly your method is flawed.
Every time they look at your face
you instantly show that they’re out of place.

Equality for gays will no longer remain unwritten
and with that I’m quite smitten.
will no longer be associated with police brutality.
I can now take part in celebration
of this cancellation
of segregation.
Now that I no longer have to remain undercover,
I have a lesbian lover.

“I have absolutely no pleasure in the stimulants in which I sometimes so madly indulge. It has not been in the pursuit of pleasure that I have periled life and reputation and reason. It has been the desperate attempt to escape from torturing memories, from a sense of insupportable loneliness and a dread of some strange impending doom.”
― Edgar Allan Poe

Love this! Sad, beautiful, and true.

"The best love is the kind that awakens the soul; that makes us reach for more, that plants the fire in our hearts and brings peace to our mind. That's what I hope to give you forever." ~The Notebook

Very,Very,Very, emotional piece of writing, and I also like how you made it rhyme with the aabb pattern, and still address an issue we Americans stil don't understand. You're a great writer. Keep up the great work.
