Will Boys Just Be Boys


Will boys just be boys,
Or girls just be girls,
Or can’t people be people,
In our small little world.
***
Why do genders have to be genders,
And not girls be like boys,
Or boys be like girls,
Or just let people be people.
***
Can’t we look beyond the gender,
And see the person,
Who likes pink and Buffy,
But is still a straight man.
***
Care not for the sex,
And ignore the gender,
Stand shoulder to shoulder,
And never surrender.
***
We are all human,
The same under the skin,
Red blood flowing through,
The veins in all of you.
***
We are born the same,
Have the same needs,
Expel the same waste,
And leave the same way.
***
Love people as people,
That’s all we need,
Don’t act out of hate,
Respect, love and be great.

We Once Said I Love You


You once said I love you without force,
Without pain, without remorse,
What we had was special,
But the bitterness came,
First it was just arguing,
Behind locked doors, then in public.
***
I once said I love you without wincing,
Without a sigh, without rolling my eyes,
What we had felt right,
But the cruelty came,
And we drifted apart,
Lived separately, Then moved apart.
***
We once said I love you without spite,
Without sarcasm, Without venom,
What we had worked,
But what finally came,
And finally ended it,
Was sharp words, and harsher jibes.

The 1967 Breakthrough


Am I dreaming,
Am I alone,
Could this be,
Could we have won,
Love is allowed,
Love is not wrong,
Society accepts us,
Society moves on,
There is still more to do,
There are those who protest,
Society will adapt,
Society has already,
Love has been accepted,
Love has no limits,
Could tomorrow be better,
Could we love free,
I am not alone,
I am not dreaming.

We All Deserve To Be Loved


Our world is still confused,
The LGBT community is so new,
But the concepts and ideas,
Are older than all of us combined,
LGBT month is a time to celebrate,
The achievements before,
The freedoms we have,
It is a time to reflect,
On the work yet to do,
The places we haven’t won yet,
There is still unfair places,
Places ruled by hatred,
But use this month to remember,
Humanity will win in the end,
And no matter your creed,
Sexualuity or colour of skin,
We are all human,
And all deserve to be loved.

Gay


They told me I was wrong,
They told me it wasn’t ok,
They told me it was not the way,
It’s not natural, they would say,
But just because they are they,
Doesn’t mean they are right,
Or have the right to say,
Just remember to love yourself,
And all will be ok,
Even if you are like me,
And you are gay.

Have Pride


I came out,
Nearly a decade ago,
One of the hardest things,
Was to admit to the world I was gay.
***
Why,
That shouldn’t be,
Admitting you are who you are,
Should be as natural as the trees are green.
***
I’m here,
For you to help you,
Should you need a shoulder,
Or just an arm to lean on,
If you need help, just ask and I will answer.
