ForbiddenWe will stand togetherForbidden in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
As we lay down our lives
In life our love forbidden our relationship condemned
We could not stay together
But in death we shall eternally be with one another
There sharn't be any fight
As in life, your beauty shines bright
As you take me away, from this life
Be this heaven or hell
As long as I am by your side, it is haven to me
So we will lay down our lives
For one another

I am a LESBIAN

Like the great MOTHER MONSTER said:
"YOU ARE BORN THIS WAY"
You ARE born this way, And who are they to tell you otherwise.
Who are they to tell you who NOT to love, and WHOM you should love.
THAT IS YOUR CHOICE, AND YOURS ALONE.
Do NOT let someone tell you different, because their lying.
It is WRONG to turn away when people call you names.
NAMES that could help you decided whether you LIVE or DIE.
It is NOT WRONG to be PROUD. So stand tall and say it LOUD.
You do realize if someone turns you away, that right there my friend is...
The biggest sin in my book.
And to all who may think I am going to...
Fall In Love Like A PansexualWhen falling in love like a pansexual becomes complicated.Fall In Love Like A Pansexual in Free Verse More Like This
When falling in love like a heterosexual is hard and shy.
When falling in like a homosexual is confusing.

Are we not just different colored leaves on a tree in fall?
Still beautiful, but the bunch of us are different.
The greens, the reds, the yellows, the oranges, and the browns.
And maybe a green wants to be with a green? So?
Maybe a brown wants to be with a red? So?
Falling in love, and being in love, like a pansexual, is no different than being in love
like a hetero. It's just different.
Two WomenITwo Women in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Two women at the altar stand,
Forever joined by heart and hand;
Two wives, from this day forth, become:
Two weddings folded into one.
A single child two mothers makes
Of these two women, and awakes
A blessedness so pure in each:
A love, that shall to heaven reach.
Two women, from this world, depart,
Each safe within the other's heart
Until, as angels eased into
Heaven, they fall in love anew.
Momma Said 'Stop Being Gay'Momma said "stop being gay,"Momma Said 'Stop Being Gay' in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
As night, to morning, faded;
Its beauty was not made to stay,
But hoary grew, and jaded.
I watched as day, with fractured light,
My every fear, rekindled,
And passion fell away to plight,
And hope but further dwindled.
Momma said "stop being gay,"
With hatred, and distress:
My tender love where sin held sway...
"Impure, and meaningless."
Within my heart and soul, I lived,
For all else had bereft me,
And nothing more could be perceived
Than how her words had left me.
Momma said "stop being gay."
For years, I never fought her,
But silently, and hopeless, lay,
The Lord's forgotten daughter.
I've sacrificed a waking dream:
My truest love, to merit
A heaven, and, in death, to seem
Not evil, but imperfect.
