My school is having a talent show so i was thinking of reading some of my poems. This poem is not about me, i'm a girl and i'm not gay, i just write poems on real life issues we face today. Let me know what you think, thanx:)
Have you ever felt so out of place?
It's a feeling you just can't erase
Everyone automatically shoots harsh looks my way
From the moment I say that I'm gay
Their stares cut deep into my skin
It's a burning sensation that I feel from within
My crying soul cannot endure the pain
I feel as if i'm going to go insane
Why should you feel the need to discriminate?
Just because I like John but not Kate
I'm just so tired of all the hate
I'm a human just like you
I deserve to be treated like one too
Is it a crime to have a different sexual preference?
It's the same thing when a guy likes a girl, what's the difference?
Just like everyone else; I deserve to be happy
So why can't everyone just accept me?
