I am gay
I prefer men instead of women
Is it that wrong?
I was born this way,
It wasn’t by choice.
In society, I am considered inhuman
People say I should be imprisoned
Others say I deserve death.
Am I that sinful?
Why the insult, the bully, the beatings?
Don’t I deserve to be treated as an equal?
Don’t I have the freedom to choose who I want to be?
Why do you care what I am anyways?
Have you cared for me when I needed someone?
Would you care if I was your son, brother, or a relative?
You criticize me, but are you without sin?
Stop being ignorant! Stop criticizing me!
I don’t care if you love me, but to the very least, RESPECT ME!
