'He Is, She Is' - Poem by Tamisha Bellamy
He is a prince who lives in India.
He is a very wise man, and that is why his people trust him.
In the future he will be the heir to his father's throne, and hold the power of his country and the fate of his own.
But what no knows is that he is keeping a secret.
While he walks down the street, there is a boiling fireball in his chest.
It burns and eats away at his soul.
Every single glance he throws at a man, or every respectable hand that grips his wrist- oh it's so hard to hide his emotions.
He knows what he really is.
He is gay, but he is still a very wise man.
She is a remarkable Jamaican poet who lives in New York.
She makes a living preaching about her beliefs, and tries her best to hide her grief.
She knows that she is not like the rest.
She is not ashamed but is very open to the truth.
She is honest, pure, and true.
And just like the prince, she holds a secret, too.
Everywhere she goes, she must look over her shoulders, because she is constantly replaying her past in her mind.
The one dark time when she was raped.
She was victimized and horrified, but never again.
God gives her blessings so she can make it through the day.
He knows her and sees her for what she really is.
She is gay, but she is still a remarkable poet- honest, pure, and true.
