you will have friends
who are spectrums
a colorless mask
red will burst
from the seams
caged by fear
and self doubt
you will have sisters
who write poetry
of soft skin
orange will bleed
from the wounds
for the dreams
of loving her
you will have brothers
who are knights
of a prince
yellow will sing
from the hearts
to the hope
of being kings
you will have daughters
who are sons
who are daughters
green will sprout
from the souls
on the voyage
of finding truth
you will have friends
who are colorless
a spectrum mask
blue will leak
from the eyes
in the guise
of painted joy
you will have people
who are soldiers
a colorful earth
purple will bind
each fighting breath
in the spectrum
of equal love.
Do what you love
Time and time again, we are told to find our drive. Our passion. Something that motivates us. Well, I adore writing! If asked why. I'd say that writing to me takes me to a whole new universe. A different world.
Writing acts like a wheel, that I love to keep turning. I also love to read other writers creations. To write, is a form of art and life. One can't simply carry on with life, and not do what they love. May the torch of writing always burn bright.
I may not be gay but I support them.
I am not a woman and a lesbian but I support them.
I may not be bisexual but I support them.
I am not transgender but I support them.
We are finally coming to an age where people are more tolerable and accepting for one another. It may not always look it, but compassion is triumphing over spite. We are seeing it in big blockbuster movies such as Brokeback Mountain and Power Rangers. We are seeing it in children's animated shows such as Steven Universe and The Loud House. Even in writing, there are a couple of gay and lesbian characters in my Sins of the Father stories.
The world has come a long way since its times of hate and ignorance. Does it still exist today? Unfortunately, yes. It will always exist. But I will always be there to stand against intolerance. I will always be there to support them.
Love is love. Love is universal.
When I was young...
When I was young, if your parents found out you were gay, they would often disown you, and kick you out of the house to live on the streets. If they were religious, they might send you to "Pray the Gay Away" camp to undergo aversion therapy. If they were more scientifically minded, they might send you to a mental hospital to be heavily medicated. In some instances, gays there would undergo electroshock therapy, and even lobotomies.
Now, same sex marriages are legally recognized across the entire nation and most of the civilized world. Many churches perform same sex weddings and have married gay clergy. Now, not only is homosexuality no longer classified as a mental illness, homophobia IS.
When I was young, gay celebrities had to remain in the closet, and even have pretend marriages, like Rock Hudson. Even obviously gay celebrities could not officially acknowledge they are gay.
Now, the most popular daytime talkshow host is a lesbian, and one of the most popular network news anchors is a gay man. Now, many young and trendy stars pretend to be bisexual to add to their cool factor.
Originally, neither political party supported LGBT rights. Then, the Democrats gave us lip service, mostly because they knew there was no way we were going to vote Republican. Then the Democrats started to truly fight for our rights. Now, many Republicans feel free enough to speak out in favor of LGBT equality; even while being bigoted towards other groups.
I feel proud in how far we have come in such a relatively short amount of time, from a group of drag queens in New York fighting against police brutality at the Stonewall bar, to the supreme court recognizing our equality.
I know this sounds odd, but I am even proud we have created Milo Yiannopoulos, a white gay man who has reached the point where his white privilege is greater than his gay stigma, allowing for him to be a voice for bigots everywhere. Imagine if all minorities, one by one, could be accepted by the hate groups- then they would have no one left to hate.
For God’s Sake, Go Running Already...
Bitch, staring at me for hours scrunching your stomach ain't gonna make you any skinnier.
Don’t Trust the Cloud
You told me that those nudes would stay private. I can't believe I trusted you.
"Doctor, what do you mean 'It's not ear wax?'"
"I don't know what it is, but it's alive, and burrowing deeper!"
We ran out of food in the house. My wallet is empty, I am now too poor for even fast food.
Bitten By My Ex
After one month of online dating, I invited him to my house to spend a little quiet time together. I never thought for an instant, that he was a vampire, just looking for a good bite.
