When did being gay become a sin?
To openly love someone of the same sex
Or be who you felt your true self is.
Why are we the ones in the closet
Why aren't you?
How is being straight the norm
But being gay isn't?
How can you not be the one's being opressed
Yet we still are.
You've seen the battles we've fought
To be as equal as you.
Yet in the end we can't be accepted
Just because we are "different"
From what you call normal.
But in the end we still fight for our rights
To be able to walk down the streets.
Holding our partner's hand & not be scared of what everybody thinks
And to be able to show the whole world
I'm d̶i̶f̶f̶e̶r̶e̶n̶t̶ the same as you
Or to be able to express who we are.
Yet you strip us of that right.
You seem to give a gender to anything and everything
Clothing, toys, drinks, everything.
Why does it have to be feminine or masculine?
Why not in between or neither?
But that's not your standards you have to classify everything
And when something or someone is different you can't accept that.
You're scared of difference and change.
That's why it took many years to finally legalize
Gay marriage but we're not done,
We still have long ways to go to be as equal as you.
To know we stand side by side,
As equal as,
And to leave a footprint in the ground
Just like everyone else before us.
That's why we're here to stay no matter what,
No matter how much you try to stop us.
We will rise
Again and again.
To be on the same level as you.
We are here
And we are human.
No matter who we prefer to love
Or how we dress
We are the same inside and out.
