Pride

When a man lies with another man

Why does that make them wrong?

And when a woman loves a woman

Why do many wish to see them hung?

 

People say that opposites attract

But equally so do the same

Yet why are so many attacked

Why are they made to feel ashamed?

 

How can someone believe themselves right

To tell others their love cannot be?

How can they so easily spite

A person’s own identity?

 

Be true to yourself, don’t try and hide

And don’t let others decide

How you should be feeling inside

 

Love whoever touches your heart

Don’t be afraid to be who you are

And hold your head high with pride

  1. Such a warm poem. “How can someone believe themselves right To tell others their love cannot be? How can they so easily spite A person’s own identity?”– Wonderful lines. Hope you are doing well, Matt.
