Bullets pierce the LGBTQ community
We saw the life stealing bullets
but we forgot the spirit breaking bullets
in our words.
My parents taught me about their lives.
Never had I felt allegiant to the community,
but I felt a moral need to
stick up for their
My friends and I,
we are all Christians.
Yet, I am the only one who
believe in humanity for
the LGBTQ crew.
Why is this so?
Why do they reject?
Religion is a platter served to those
who yearn for it.
Do not shove it in the face of someone who
does not want it
does not need it
does not support its creation.
I did not accept Christ into my heart
to give myself an excuse to hate.
The bullets in Orlando shattered my heart
But the bullets in my friends' mouths shattered my soul
For I do not align with the emotions of the LGBTQ community
But a woman of color should never find solace in people
Who rob humanity
From people who look like them.
