Homosexual

People bring me down only because I'm a guy who loves men.
Always trying to change me, trying to make me into someone I'm not.
Force me to sit down, open my eyes, and stare at the t.v. screen.
Women bouncing around in bikinis, eating a banana so sexually.
I'm sorry to say, but that sort of thing doesn't turn me on.
I know who I am, so I'll break free from their bonds.

'Cause I'm a homosexual and damn proud to be one.
I'm not your stereotypical one, I fight with an iron fist.
Don't go around fallin' to my knees, waiting to give pleasure.
I'm travelin' 'round the globe trying to shed new light on our kind.

Every day it's a new type of hate that I face.
Bibles being thrown at me, saying my kind shouldn't exist.
But if God created us to be the way we are, then it was his intent.
'Cause you claim in the Bible that God hates fags, but you forget:
He's the one that passes judgment to Heaven, not you.

Yeah I'm a homosexual and damn proud to be one.
I make my stand with my new found voice I've gained.
I'll slowly show the world that not every gay is the same.
I'll travel around the globe with my wings spread out wide.
'Cause I'm the angel of light even when darkness rules my heart.

People keep on trying to bring me to tears with different names.
Ranging from Queer to Faggot, they don't phase me.
I've faced so much homophobia that no longer am I scared.
With a serious look on my face, I strike fear into their hearts.

'Cause I'm a homosexual and damn proud to be one.
I'm the strong kind, not the weak one that hides and pretends to be someone else.
I fight with an army coming from the rear, not with a purse in hand.
I'll change the world on the view of us one step at a time.

Yeah I'm a homosexual and damn proud to be one.
People keep on asking would I switch genders to fit into the norm.
I'll still remain the guy who loves men, I'm not that easily tempted.
'Cause it's time for a change, need to open our eyes to the truth:
Kids being disowned by their parents 'cause they're gay.
Another man beaten to death 'cause he loves men.
Society wanting to stop gay marriages 'cause love is suppose to be
between a man and a woman.
Love is a definition not defined.

Another threat from a random guy I don't know.
I won't hide and run for in fear, I'll stand up tall.
'Cause I'm strong, this I know for a fact.
Make him run with his tail between his legs.
Show him that I don't take bullshit from anyone.

Yeah I'm a homosexual and damn proud to be one.
I make my stand with my new found voice I've gained.
I'll slowly show the world that not every gay is the same.
I'll travel around the globe with my wings spread out wide.
'Cause I'm the angel of light even when darkness rules my heart.
'Cause I'm the one who dreams big every time I lay to sleep.
'Cause I just can't stand watching another innocent die before my eyes.
'Cause that's just the kind of person that I am.

Written on: 2/22/08
I know this one might cause a really big stir, but whatever. I stand tall and be very true to who I am.

This is one of the most realistic poems I've written to date besides the one I wrote for :icongwarins-knight: for that poem request.

Anyway, hope you enjoyed.

Comments and :+fav:s always appreciated

Lust without love is the only sin. If you love someone, then, whether you're gay or straight, God and everyone else should be happy for you, right? I've got no regrets about who I am. I'm proud to be gay!!

Of course, think about any discrimination campaign.
There's always one thing to every one, a few strong leaders who won't back down or hide. :)

I hear ya there. I was pretty lonely in high school, except for a couple of J-O buddies. I had a huge crush on my Biology lab partner, but I kept my mouth shut. I'm a Lutheran man, but I believe that God wants all of His children to be happy with the person they love, so I'm not worried about Hell, or anything. Good luck to you! ^_^

HURAH! I'm not gay, and I kind of don't belong on this comment thread, but my friend Luke was this way! He kicked the asses of all the boys who called him a fag, and he never tried to hide it. He was the baddest mofo I ever meet! Ah... too bad he's in Juvy now, because he was a little too bad of a mofo...

Ah, its okay! He's protected by the Sureno gang in juvy, and he'll be out before High School Graduation in 2012! GO LUKE GO! But, for some reason, the Mexican kids in juvy made him shave his eyebrows completely off D:

Idk, it has something to do with the Mexican Mafia. Not even the bloods or crips do that. But, Luke seems to be handling himself alright in juvy. He says its kind of like really crappy schooling... with more fights.

Thanks. It's my favorite line because it's pretty true. Love is a definition not defined even though people try to say it's defined by when a man loves a woman.

Indeed... and in some ways, you got the message I was trying to get across with my new documentary... the one I"m working on now.. it's showing defintiions from different people about homosexual and bisexual and then pansexual... then, the main part, getting across various opinion about homosexuality... weather it's wrong, how they feel around queer people that sort of thing (I don't like the word queer, it's still new to me... I'm using it to basically sum up LGBT community)
