Look at my reflection and happily say
Nothing needs to be done today
Little girly bra
With underwear to match
Maybe I could look like, quite the catch
Apply some lipgloss
Put on my shirt
It's about time I wore that frilly pink skirt
Let's turn it around
Look at my reflection and sigh
Damn it to heck, I look nothing like a guy
Pull on the Spiderman boxers
Strap the binder real tight
Ignore the pain, with all my might
Grab the plain black t-shirt
and the lose fitting jeans
I guess I'm not really all that it seems
Let's put this routine on shuffle, day after day
And ignore the ignorance most people say
Let's fake a smile when they only use 'she'
And just remember I am who I want to be
Not male, just female to my family, but both to my friends
The ones who make me stronger
I only have to keep this up for a little while longer
Im biMom i told you somethingIm bi3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
a long time ago
but you didnt believe me
except laugh in my face
I told you that i cut
I told you that i am bi
I love both girls and boys
but I had depression as well
why do you think of me as a different person?
Why dont you believe me when i said I am bi?
Why do you treat me differently than any other person?
It meant a lot to me
when i was open
but in the end
I was left with tears that fell
Mom do you understand me?
Dad do you know how I feel?
Why cant i be open to you
without getting hurt all the time?
It is true
I am bi
I love both boys and girls
I am attracted to both
I have been for a long time
but you guys dont believe me
You guys laughed in my face
and hurt me even more
I told you the truth
Yes i am different
I told you that i cut
I told you that Im bi
Why make fun of me?
I thought you guys cared
I thought you guys would love me
even if i am different?

No! (A cry against homophobics)No!No! (A cry against homophobics)2 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Rubbing dirt on a wound is not a rational treatment
You can’t continue to push someone down
And expect them to stand
Try to tell them that they are treated as equal
When they can’t even be joined hand in hand
And you say that you’re civilized people??!
When you won’t let a man love a man???
But you’ll cover a shotgun disaster
With a wedding that neither parent had planned
With no choice, force their hand on the matter
Yet two willing and loving are morally banned??
You are not doing work to be admired
When you go out and picket against open gays!
You’re cheering when a gay man is fired
Celebrating in their pain, and insist it’s okay
Because this is the life God inspired
And He works in mysterious ways
Well, I didn’t know that God required
Hatred along with loving thy neighbor and praise
Forgive me, my God, if I’m mistaken
But it doesn’t feel right to treat them this way
Because they are different, we should hate th

You said you'd always love me,
So why is it when I tell you I'm gay
You can't even see
How I'm honestly feeling and
How you can't let me be.
Why mommy, why?
Why can't you accept this?
Why do you make me want to die
Just because I'm not following the norm?
Would it be better if I were bi?
At least I'd have the slightest interest in men.
Screw you and your old-fashioned ways.

I'm choking on the fear
you're pushing me out of your life,
or so it seems.
I'm choking on your love
as you reach down inside of me;
pulling back everything you gave,
the best of me.
I'm choking on the silence,
the stale air,
the distance between you and me.
I'm choking on your promises,
the dreams you stole from me.
My heart is crushed,
while suffocating lungs,
drown on lost possibilities.
A hollow chest,
gasps for breath,
watching you destroy everything.
So fuck the world.
Just a girl and a girl,
captured in a love affair.
causing this relationship tear.
So I'm choking on the anger.
And I'm choking on the pain.
Because I want to bide my time,
till we can be together again.
But you keep me in the darkness;
you're hiding out in there.
There's nothing left to do,
but choke on these spilled tears.

People in forever pain
Open and ripped apart
Calm wants not, rain
All I see is a fresh start
Let all the rage drain
You are a piece of living art
Peace is the future, hatred slain
Slowly the world turns, a fresh start
Eyes upon the future, a new year, will love reign?

In The Snowfall
I remember it
As if it was just last night
Our surroundings were lit
Illuminated by the surfaces covered in white
The way you smiled
It gave me comfort inside
And my heart seemed to be veiled
Knowing you have become a part of my life
Step by step
I stopped blinking
As we tread
I ceased breathing
Chills were sent
Our hands touching
Our lips met
Gazing at you is a must
You curiously peered up
As snowflakes danced down towards us
And it dawned on me that I was madly in love
Mesmerizing my soul
Spreading a calming warmth
Into my core
I held you in my arms
I felt whole
Connected our hearts
Alone no more
Within my eyes
I captured those images
To remember for the rest of our lives
Just to relive something so passionate
It was the perfect setting
I was lost in awe
A memory so desi

The Unseen Life
I thought pain was created to fade
But it seems like my life was crafted to break
So I apologize to the mirror and say "I'm sorry, it's too late."
I can't even look at my own face, as I can never accept my mistakes
I realize that I am brokenly made
My mind bleeds away the memories I've wasted
Remorse begins to slowly fill in the gaps that are left
This stained razor blade leaves every dark moment perfectly divided
I try not to indulge in act of prayer, because I refuse to ever confess
Even in death I will never rest
All visible colors descend into the ground
And time drifts off to sleep
Every sharp outline ascends into the clouds
As this reality begins to dream
This world has truly abandoned me
I keep on doing what I've done
So I can't deny that I've forsaken hope
I couldn't stop the emptiness once it had begun
But I had no other choice, because I was left alone
All I have ever had was myself to disown
Dawning self-hatred with no e

I want acceptance
Whether it shapes my life or is just a phase
I want comfort

If I become a doctor, tattooist, or janitor
I want encouragement
To follow my heart

while others are Gay
Some believe that Gays are a Sin
while others call it Love
Others are Bisexual
Who love both of the sexes
Many people call it a Sin
while others believe it isn't fake
There is nothing wrong with it
We are here to love one another
So why do people call us a Sin?
When to be Honest Love is a Beautiful thing
Many will think its wrong
while others think it's perfectly fine
Not all girls love Men
and not all Men love Girls
So why can't we all be equal?
Why must there be a Fight?
Maybe I will go to Hell
Cause maybe it is a Sin
If loving someone is a issue
if loving the same sex is wrong
Then maybe I don't want to be right
Cause I am here to Love who ever I want to Love
Society Has No Say On GayYoung and in loveSociety Has No Say On Gay3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Over and over
We fall for those we shouldn't
Society thinks they have a say
But our hearts have other plans
Those who don't understand
Try to change us
They think that queer is wrong
That queer is curable
I speak for myself when I say,
I've loved many
But only felt right with a few
And one of them is a woman
And so am I
At least genetically
They're like water
You knock a glass over
The water is displaced
But it is not gone
You can knock us over
We will not disappear
Wrong isn't the word for us
Nor is unnatural
Try something like human
Some cells, tissue
A brain that contains emotion
Love, something that is involuntary
It is never too late to discover
To find out who you really are
something others should not control
Society is nothing without numbers
Let those numbers favor our side
And if not, we shall never back down

Katrina sat on the ground for as long as she could. Rebecca was with so much childish energy that Katrina had to stand and play police woman with her. Rebecca found the attention to be fun and entertaining.
An hour went by and the light butterfly had not returned. Katrina felt concerned about what it could possibly mean.
Then, about 10 minutes later, the light butterfly comes flapping into the basement and started to fly around Katrina. Rebecca stopped her playing ways and looked at the butterfly in awe.
"The light from the world what have you found? Please speak only truth," said Katrina.
In an eerier female echo voice it said, "The parents of Rebecca Cooley are located an hour north of here on foot. Follow the main road north and you will find them in a forest like setting surrounded by cement and stone heads". With that the butterfly extinguished its flames and disappeared.

Nightmare: The Only Cure
My insides burn-
Like swallowing acid
Reality slows down-
Smiling is therapeutic
Health is a virtue / Strength is torture
Alive again tomorrow / Enduring the horror
To keep on breathing
Mirrors are left sickened
Grinning back at myself
You must be enjoying this hell
Perfect possession / Muffled suffocation
Heart is racing / Sight is darkening
In these hallucinations
My skin is melting
Oh how I wish I was dreaming
Of when I finally start recovering
It's only hopeful thinking
A cure for me is a delusion
Quarantined tears / Reality's nightmare
I am beyond repair / All were well aware
A bright light shone-
Like a welcoming presence
My suffering is done-
Take away my sickness

Promises Of Today
The sands of time can be unpredictable
But to mold them is impossible
And being let down is typical
I, for one, know what it's like
Having that unrelenting doubt dwell inside
And withstanding all of those tears that aren't dried
With that said
I want to help you, my dear friend
For the hope of happiness is within the reach of your hands
I need to apologize for not always being there
It's because I have my own slate
But now I'm finally here
I'm sorry I'm late
I've been where you are
I've seen what you've seen
And I was able to break through the dark
But I'll go back for you, just to help you believe
That it can get better
If you truly want it to
The era of fear can be over
It just all depends on you
But I know
That not all of us are strong enough
And that's why a lot of people tend to let go
So I am here to lend my rough hands to help you up
You are so important
Even if you don't see it
You're such a wonderful person
So I know you deserve to make it through this

I couldn't be gay, just like I couldn't have caused his death. When he told me, someone overheard and asked me how I could be his friend anymore and I just couldn't stand the embarrassment. So I said it. I said I couldn't be friends with a fag. I said that right to his face and I walked away.
He left early; someone said he wasn't feeling well. I never thought—he was always so happy, so kind to everyone. And look what happened. Kids took advantage of him and he couldn't handle it. Kids are cruel, my class is cruel…and he was, well, weak.

Is my love a crime?
Or has she gotten it half right?
Am I just dooming myself to a downward plight?
Down to a hellish depression,
No relief from my own oppression.
I stress and flail dismally,
I earn no pity, feel so petty.
Gender serves to confuse and bemuse,
My sexual orientation sometimes feels like a ruse.
Am I winning in this game?
Or should I just surrender in shame?

“Yes quite amazing but the prodigy didn’t have a chance to celebrate before falling unconscious. The people nearby claimed he was determined to go someplace.” The second host, a man, reported. “Something about a promise to someone... Probably a pretty girl.”
