Original message I am ( a poem with a message)


am the boy who never finished high school, because I got called a fag every day.

I am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian.

I am the guy that lives on the streets because I am scared to go home.

I am the prostitute working the streets because I can't find anybody who will hire a transsexual woman.

I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled nights.

We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time.

I am the man who died alone in the hospital because they would not let my partner of twenty-seven years into the room.

I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I wish they could adopt me.

I am the Christian that canít find a pastor to marry me to a woman in the eyes of God.

I am one of the lucky ones, I guess. I survived the attack that left me in a coma for three weeks, and in another year I will probably be able to walk again.

I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before graduating high school. It was simply too much to bear.

I am the child that dreams of seeing my mum again. The courts wonít let me because she lives with another woman.

I am the man who fears that I will never be able to be myself, to be free of this secret because I wonít risk loosing my family and friends.

We are the couple who had the realtor hang up on us when she found out we wanted to rent a one-bedroom for two men.

Teh pity!!!! It hurts!!! :rolleyes:

Its not a poem, its a statement.

Had a guy at poetry slam do the same kind of thing ( wasn't gay thou).

How he went home every day and put a gun to his head because the world was not a Socialist paradise.

Boo fuckin' hoo, I was made fun of in school (for nothing having to do with sexuality) as well.
Not going to start a pity-party over it, either.

I don't remember, exactly. I think a friend of mine saw it on a forum and showed it to me. I've had it for months.

Response to Original message
1. and these things will keep happening as long as

--religions and conservatives continue to promote homophobia and hate as "moral" values

--A democratic president with a huge democratic majority in the house and a huge democratic majority in the senate can't seem to pass ENDA or repeal DADT or even think about repealing DOMA

:rolleyes:

This is the kind of shit that makes me want to give reorientation therapy a try.

Not the people at church. Not my parents. It's the butthurt whining from other gay people who after whining, STILL vote Democrat and are shocked, positively SHOCKED (!) when nothing happens.

Well, the christian looking for a pastor to do a same-sex marriage isn't looking very hard. There are plenty out there, in the liberal denominations.

Me, too.
I got picked on in high school (And, yes, one guy called me "Fag" even though I'm not gay and hadn't done anything to imply I was), but I didn't let it drive me to make the incredibly stupid and gutless decision to drop out. I graduated, and with good enough grades to get a 75% college scholarship.

Sara, that's wrong. Unless you know that type of pain, I don't think you should judge or criticize. JMO.

Well, who should be blamed for having asshole parents if it's not the parents?

That poem reminds me of something ...



Ub40 One In Ten Lyrics

[Chorus:]
I am the one in ten
A number on a list
I am the one in ten
Even though I don`t exist
Nobody Knows me
Even though I`m always there
A statistic, a reminder
Of a world that doesn`t care

My arms enfold the dole queue
Malnutrition dulls my hair
My eyes are black and lifeless
With an underprivileged stare
I`m the beggar on the corner
Will no-one spare a dime?
I`m the child that never learns to read
`Cause no-one spared the time

[Chorus]

I`m the murderer and the victim
The licence with the gun
I`m a sad and bruised old lady
In an ally in a slum
I`m a middle aged businessman
With chronic heart disease
I`m another teenaged suicide
In a street that has no trees

[Chorus]

I`m a starving third world mother
A refugee without a home
I`m a house wife hooked on Valium
I`m a Pensioner alone
I`m a cancer ridden spectre
Covering the earth
I`m another hungry baby
I`m an accident of birth.

Why yes a hit song from the 1980's. :rolleyes:
