I Am Gay - Poem by Maya Took

I am Gay,
Shall I feel shame?
NO-
This is what I feel!
Only you-there is to blame
Who reject me-
Those who fear-
I'm gay! gay am I
Let all the blocked-minded hear!
Eithe accept-or Begone!
But if you thus choose to do-
My respect for thee is gone!
This is ME! face it, accept!
And if not- you are unworthy of respect!

From Antartica to Alaska-
And through the waist of the earth I say-
Let the whole world know-
I'm Gay, I'm GAY!

*Inspired by Whalt Whitman's ideas
