Hate on Spirit DayHate on Spirit DayHate on Spirit Day3 years ago in Spirit Day More Like This
It was supposed to be a day of acceptance
A day for everyone to stand up
To stand up against hate.
However it changed sadly
I heard a word I hadn't in a while
And it hurt that spirit day provoked it.
I wanted to hit him
To make him see why we were wearing purple
But that wont solve anything.
Instead I focused on those around me
The dots of purple in the sea of my school
The boy that doesn't believe in gay marriage
Wearing purple because we are his friends.
I don't understand him
The way he wore all purple yesterday
But I love that he wore it.
Because we are his friends
And he loves us despite everything
Despite people calling him a fag
He wore purple for us.
And I remember that
Far more than the harsh words of the morning.
Proud to Wear PurpleI am proud to wear purple.Proud to Wear Purple3 years ago in Spirit Day More Like This
I am proud to show support to those who need it,
I am proud to show my acceptance,
I am proud to show my joy for those who found their own happiness.
I am glad to wear purple.
Glad that I may help change someone's life,
Glad that I have the courage to go against the grain,
Glad that I am not afraid to speak up for what I believe in.
I am sad to wear purple.
Sad that the bullying that occurs,
Sad that no one will step up and save them,
Sad that some of those who died thought there was no other way out.
I will wear purple.
I will wear purple,
Be strong for those who need me,
And speak out against all bullying.
This never should have happened.
