National Day of SilenceNational Day of Silence in Free Verse More Like This
Close your mouth, shut it tight,
Stand up for others for the fight.
Keeping silent throughout the day
To protest for those transgendered, bi & gay.
Stop harassment, prejudice & discrimination,
No bullying & hate leads to a balanced equation.
Silence is golden, remember that rule
Tape over your mouth, at least while at school.
BiSo I like girlsBi in Free Verse More Like This
What's the big deal?
If I tell my parents
Their hearts may never heal?
Should I really be concerned?
Should I even care?
If I don't let them know
I'd be choking on air
Yeah I like girls
But I like guys too
For now I'm stuck in a rut
What am I to do?
I seem in-denial
'Cause that's what people want to hear
It's shoved down my throat
I can barely even smile
Uncontrollable FeelingsYou hear the saying, "There's a reason for everything in life."Uncontrollable Feelings in Free Verse More Like This
You hear the saying, "There's a choice for everything."
But is there really?
There's not a CHOICE for being gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender.
If there's choice for being L, G, B or T, then being straight's also a CHOICE.
Like we choose to go down a road of hate and discrimination.
However, there IS a choice to being homophobic. To hating people just for being who they are.
Why should people of the LGBT community try to hide who they are because they're afraid of being judged, ridiculed, bullied, bashed, and hated so much into committing suicide?!
Why do people do what they do?
Calling us faggots, dykes, flamers, queers, and homos! Who the hell do these people think they are?
"God hates fags. Fags will burn in hell. God hates fag enablers. Fags die, God laughs."
Isn't God supposed to love everyone unconditionally? If God hated gays, why would he keep making them; why would they still be here? Who made THEM God to decid

Love is BlindMy ears do not hear,Love is Blind in Free Verse More Like This
My eyes do not see,
But my heart still feels love,
And so I am free.
Love without limits, love without bars,
Love that is joyful, love beyond rage.
This I have found, and this I do know:
Love unlocked the door of my heart's lonely cage.
I will not listen to the anger screamed in my face,
I will not allow my soul to know fear.
I am whole, I am loved.
This is right, to have my love by me here.
Take a moment, stand with me.
Hear through my ears, see through my eyes.
Do you understand the truth of my world,
That love sees beyond all disguise?
You can fight it, deny it, run away out of fear;
Lock up mind and heart behind cannon-proof walls.
But is it worth it to greet love with hate,
And deny the sound of unity's call?
Man, woman, white, black, fat, thin, us, them;
These are the words that define what love can be.
What is allowed to the heart lest we offend the eyes.
And yet, I am blind - so my heart is free.
Death of an ExileMy life I lay in your hands,Death of an Exile in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
My dreams, counting like the many sands.
I trust in you, believe in you.
I will myself forever to be true.
But here I wait, I stand aside,
I let you go on the dawn's first tide.
Fly away, hopeful thoughts to nest
Secret within the heart in my breast.
Remember me, when the wind sings a sigh,
Remember me, when my wings flutter by.
I could have had anything if I only would be dark,
But now I can but fade like the sun's last mark.
It should have been my place there, with my own kind,
But here's where I stay, among the ash and the pine.
I hear the sigh of the sea as it sings out its song,
I hear the sigh of the sea, and know there isn't long.
My body lies trapped now, by cruel stone and bars,
But I hear my soul sing out to the stars.
I feel my wings spread, and I'll fly to the sun
For this shell to be left behind as I become none.
It is not a sadness that must greet this change,
A final freedom from pain, anger, and rage.
These diseases of soul to pain me no mor
