Objective: You will be engaged in an in-depth study of same sex marriages. This project will involve research and the result will be an argument presented in the form of a debate.
1. Homosexuality is not natural.
Much like eyeglasses, cesarean sections, birth control and painkillers are not natural.
2. The purpose of marriage is to procreate.
Therefore, sterile males, women that cannot bear children, the elderly, infirm, and infertile CANNOT be married.
3. Living with gay parents will adversely impact childrens lives.
Living with abusive parents, alcoholics, drug addicted parents, and parents that are never home is worse than living in a household with two loving gay people.
4. Gay Parents raise Gay Children.
Straight parents only raise straight children.
CreationSun-lit rays shines upon me,Creation11 months ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I can feel the warm breeze,
As I walk onward, I see,
A yellow and black pesky bee.
It flies on to a pretty flower.
I also see a beautiful oak tree,
Its height, so tall, like a tower,
All grown by a seed the size of a pea.
I keep on walking through,
The wonders of the earth,
From flora, like trees of yew,
To fauna, like pigs so wide in girth.
I think about the wonders of creation,
That God almighty has created,
So much life, a true declaration,
Of God's power, that isn't equated.
All of creation gives thanks to the Lord,
For he has bestowed upon us his accord.

but no tears will come,
But nobody would hear,
I'd call out your name,
If it'd do me any good.
So don't tell me,

Don't tell me,
Because I don't care.
definition of lovedefinition of love2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
What is it that defines love?
Is it that world
awaiting far above?
"A chemical reaction in the brain."
That's what they say
in the science domain.
An ambiguous word
to say the least.
Is there no way to tame the beast?
Perhaps when two
are meant to entwine
it comes once in a lifetime.
But there is more than one form,
to your surprise?
Just look into each others eyes.
The eyes of you friend,
who stuck by your side.
Thick and thin throughout the ride.
The eyes of your mother,
who cared for you then,
and cares for you now, once again.
The eyes of your father
that you revere,
but know he will always be here.
The eyes of your teddy bear
that you once bore
to protect you from the dark you abhor.
"love" has been tainted.
Defined in ways brutally painted.
But the true meaning of love
Not always defined by wedding bands.
All i ask
is to cast your mind,
way back in your lifetime;
to the people who love you
through each day
and love them back in the same way.
Mischief ManagedTiptoeing down the hall,Mischief Managed7 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
One young man sneaks around,
With a smirk on his face,
Something is going to happen,
Warned by his mischievous grin.
Water balloons pulled at full taut,
On a slingshot,
Aimed at a pretty girl,
He doesn't know how to express,
His only way is by this prank.
"Ahhhh," she screamed,
Frightened by the cool blast,
Of water on her skin,
She discovers the man,
With a smile on his face,
Holding the slingshot by his side.
She asked angrily why,
He answered with ease,
"To have your attention only for me",
Surprised by his answer,
She stood in shock.
She then grinned with a smile,
Bright with happiness,
"Well I got your mind thinking about me,
So I'm happy",
They looked at each other,
Eyes gleaming with new found love.
The Spider and the RoseBlack spider and white rose,The Spider and the Rose4 months ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Held together by a thread of gold.
Inexorably linked by a single chain
And by the story they both hold.
Given by the same one hand,
A hand now burning cold.
Tiny black spider and stone white rose,
Held in the hand that you now hold.
Whispers of hate and of love,
Two words with one mouth told.
Poisonous spider and frail white rose
Held together by a chain of gold.

Though not very bright,
A English-man through and through,
My closest mon ami,
With a memory of an elephant,
I can always rely on him,
To lend a helping hand,
All mysteries are more interesting,
My life-long friend.
My Belgium detective,
Who always insists on using,
His little grey cells,
In his egg-shaped head,
I can always count on his mustache,
To be perfectly waxed,
He could solve any puzzle,
My life-long friend.

Reaching For A Mirror
Listen, sooner or later you're going to have to look me in the eyes, it's unavoidable
It's going to be that time when you let your guard down, your reaction will be recognizable
I don't know if you're able to face me yet, but you need an intervention, because this is personal
You're not going to like what I have to say to you, I know you're going to resist, you're so predictable
What exactly do you know? You know NOTHING! Because left you a long time ago
We don't need to talk, you don't even really exist to me, you don't have power anymore
There's nothing you can say to me that might help, not even by a little, so just leave me alone
Don't even speak to me, don't try and "get through" to me, it's useless now, so please, just go
I don't know where I went wrong, I've already told you that I've only ever tried my very best
You need to quit being stubborn, stop this foolishness, remember who you are, and never forget
Before you took

I enter the classroom and look around
I sit at my desk and stare at the floor
Nobody here ever tries to talk to me
and I can't really talk to them
I usually wait for class to begin
But ten minutes can feel like an eternity
I wish I could pop in my earphones
But they cut them in half yesterday...
Sometimes I hear them talking about me
But the words are always the same
They say it so much that I start to believe;
That I'm really what they say I am
Ugly, fat, stupid, beast;
These are the lightest words that they use
I wonder why they have to do it to me
But I don't know what it's like to be normal
Lunchtime is usually not so bad
I try to keep to myself wherever I can
It didn't work so well today though
Because they noticed me sitting in the corner
The biggest one in the group decides to approach me
His words sound like he's speaking in tongues
My heart seizes up and I'm too scared to react
So he ends up pouring milk over my head
About Honour"Ever worried about what the world thought of you?"About Honour2 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
"Nope. I only worry about what I think of me."

"Really? And what do you call yourself?"
"I call me proud."
"What do you call yourself?"
"I am the grade school version of the heartbroken girl, who can't play the guitar so she strums a ukulele instead, who can't paint so she draws terrible pictures in graphite that keeps giving way."
"I see you doing it again. Put the fucking pen down right now and stop it."
"What? I was just writin-"
"You're cutting yourself to pieces with shark-toothed words again. Just because a sword is a beautiful, glittering object of honour doesn't mean it always has an honorable purpose."
"Do you really think I am a sword?"
"Nope. I think you're beautiful, glittering object of honour. And the thing with honour is, it makes the world turn to stare in awe."
Colours I Never TastedIt is not worth escaping over.Colours I Never Tasted2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
No, sometimes the sun rises lopsided in the horizon and the
clink of glasses against teeth sets irate neurones off in your mind cavity
and fireflies extinguish on car windscreens in rain storms. Sometimes
August drops down into lake reflections and sometimes October never
sends a breeze to whisper into your ears. But they teach you that all of
that is okay, even when you're watching sunflowers writhe towards the
sun with grey blankets over humid-day hair.
There will always be a dawn. Stay awake for it.
You are not truly living until you have breathed.
And by that, I mean, take two feet and place them on the path
or the grass and inhale April. it doesn't matter if it is not April,
imagine the dandelions and the daffodils and the soft bleat of lambs
and that fresh scent rushing past your nose in long car journeys,
the one that tugs your legs onto the map and tells you 'this is home,
all forty thousand kilometres of it'.
The world is your oyster. Be the pear

I barrel into your form and pull out heartbroken phrases,
which i use to feather my fortress of thistle and bone.
At last even the sounds of your body are gone--
the succinct echo of footsteps against the ground,
decay in the gut, the quietness of tears,
a digestive squeak.
none of these survive the night.
I even carry with me the emptiness
where you once stood, hands at sides
like a sink slowly dripping water--
left, forgotten as the night unfolds
into the world of morning.
