For once I’m actually happy
Despite all the shit that happens,
She makes my day better
It doesn’t matter if my parents don’t “agree” with it
My dad and I butt heads all the time
Although if my grandma knew, she’d probably keel over
At least that’s what my mom says.
And when high-up officials call this happiness “devil’s work”
Or use their Book to hate us
We drown them out, and hold our hands high, because
We will not be silenced.
I have been happier than I have been in forever;
She and I can talk about whatever, but at the end of the day
When we’re together, her dark eyes look at mine
And tell me “I love you”
And I know everything will be ok.
