All these words being said, rumors being spread
All around me and I try to ignore.
Why must we fill words with venom
I would rather celebrate
all we are and where we have been

Why should it matter how one looks
or their orientation
At the end of it all, we are all the same
people with feelings and hearts
All the same

It hurts to hear these things being said
words misused and statements that abuse
Who does it help in the end?
At the end of the day all I can say
spread love not hate!!
