Waiting On Change

YOU need to change

YOU utter words of pain

Sharp enough to slit my wrist

Yet clear enough for me to think

Should I really end this?

 

The name calling the jokes

It all never stops

So I isolate myself and ponder my thoughts

Beaten and bruised, torn down and unhappy

Why do YOU hate me for my sexuality?

 

If I am gay, straight, lesbian or confused

In all honesty I wonder, why does it concern YOU?

I am constantly criticized for simply being me

And YOU society, are the bully.

Very well written, I feel the pain thru the words.  Hoping change comes sooner than later we are losing way too many GREAT children.

Love the poem, constantly think about that issue 

and why other people care so much about what

people do or like. This poem is great.

Amen. I can totally relate, because society encourages us all to be ouselves yet society itself judges and critizes us for not reaching "the image" they have in mind!!!

Great poem, and two thumbs up!!!
