fighting for our rights

As we walk the streets people seem to judge who we

As we live are love life in secret because of are fears

As time comes when we have to face are fears of being judged

No more hiding are true selfs because of who we are

As we live this secret life wanting to be judged upon who we are and not what we are

Facing people as they label us upon what they see and not what they know

As they consider us as sinners because of are sexuality without evening know who we really are

As the day comes closer for us to speak up and show them we not afraid anymore

As we take the first step to come out of the closet and show them we are just as normal as they are

To prove them that we are people and should not be shoved aside because of our sexuality

As we take the leap into the fire to speak out for the ones who are afraid of being judged because of there life style.

As we let our sexuality stand and fight for the right to be free wirhout judgment

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
