Who do I see when I look in the mirror?
What gender do I see myself marrying?
Why am so confused all of a sudden?

Such a mean little word.
It's been with us since before 900 AD.
It appears in many languages, in nearly the same form. Old Frisian, Old High German, Dutch, Old Saxon, Old Icelandic, Gothic, Old English, Old Norse.
There has certainly never seemed to be a shortage of it.
In truth it seems we have spread it out and carried it with us for centuries.
It's so easy to hold onto after all, and so easy to share.
With our family, with our neighbors, with total strangers even.
Maybe it's time to let it go.

It Gets Better (My Story)Hello, my name is Cas, and this is my story.It Gets Better (My Story) in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
Growing up, I never heard or knew much of the LGBT community. I was a church-going girl, a strong Christian, and I was blindly taught by my family how things were and how to live life. I remember once asking a member of my family why two men or two women could not marry one another, and the answer that I was told was 'because gay people cannot stay in long-term relationships, and if they could get married then they would all just be getting divorced all the time'. At the time it did not sound right to me, but I did not question.
In the third grade, my parents had a horrible divorce. My father was sick of the stress that my mother's constant illnesses caused, and he was tired of dealing with her mood-swings which had lead to her attempting suicide three times while I was a child. I was taken from my home in the country and moved to a somewhat larger city with my mother and grandparents. During this time, my father got back into theater. He wo

By Cassidy MacIntosh
Must be tolerant
of my silly accents
and my lack of grace.
Acceptance of my selfish need
to hold your attention,
and my sarcastic humor,
along with my general lack
of brain to mouth filter.
Appearance means nothing
but I prefer meat on the bones
someone who I can hold,
and who can hold me in return.
Smiling and dancing
playing in the leaves and snow
and romantic dates
are all memories that I would like to share.
Can enjoy the little things,
love notes and cute doodles
food shaped in hearts
random texts at any time of day
and cute nick names.
Intelligence is a must,
but I hope to have someone who can make me feel as smart
as I want to make them feel.
Must love being festive for holidays
all kinds of music
cuddling and hugs
and have an open mind for new things.
All that I want to do
Is make sure you know that you are loved
and that you know how beautiful you are.

Love is...Love is the smile on your face when you hear their nameLove is... in Free Verse More Like This
It's the beat your heart skips when they say yours aloud
It's the tear in your eye when you won't see them till tomorrow
Love is a train of white sliding down an aisle of flower petals
It's the raising of a veil; the only thing separating you and your dearest
It's the cheers of the kiss when two become one
Love is snapping at each other after a long, hard day
It's raising your voices just enough to upset one another
It's curling up in bed together and spending the night in each other's arms
Love is the first cry of the start of a new life
It's a newborn sleeping soundly in the arms of those that love it
It's the unspoken promise to keep the child safe from harm and raised with love
Love is the smile on your face when they remember your name for the first time in months
It's the beat your heart skips when you realize it was their last word
It's the tear in your eye when you realize you won't get to see them tomorrow

We know our words mean little
For you do not know who we are
But we know you
We know of your desires
We wish for you to be happy
For you to find love in this dreadful world
A world void of peace and harmony
We yearn for your order
A place of solace
A place of belonging
Our desire is to dry your tears
To see you pure-hearted smile
To hear your honey-coated laughter
We want you to know that you are not alone
That things will get better
That there is always someone there for you
You may not know who they are
And they may not know your name
But they love you
We love you
We are here for you
We wish for your happiness
We will always be here for you
If you have no where else to turn
If you want to talk about your day
No matter the conversation
If we can put a smile on your face
We will be here for you
Legalized Love They are one of the strongest and cutest couples I know. They complement each other flawlessly in both a physical and a mental sense. They've been together for over ten years and, although they just were officially married less than a month ago, they've considered themselves married for at least five years. They are always smiling with each other, willing to do whatever it takes to make the other happy, and even own & run a business together. Yes, these two lovely ladies are a match made in heaven; however, they had to go to a different state to be married because their state does not perform gay marriages. Gay marriage should be legalized in every state because love is not based on gender, old-time customs change, and legalizing it would take the world one step closer to being a safe place for every individual.Legalized Love in Academic Essays More Like This
