    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    Context doesn't matter to this liberal it seems/ as long as it satisfies his godless dreams/ like monkeys throwing sh!t as castles in air/ as long as he throws/that is the extent of his care.
