I am LGBT

I am LGBT 

by: Jose Avila Lara

 

I wonder, "Who's out there? Who's coming? Where can I hide?".

I hear, "Judgement, Hipocritizism, Discrimination".

 I see, "Scared souls', Lost souls', Many Tears". 

I proclaim, "Justice, Equality, Acceptance". 

I am LGBT!

I am LGBTI wonder what's next, whose out there, where can I hideI hear discrimination, judgement, hipocritizmI see scared souls', no smiles, many tearsI want Equality, Freedom,AcceptanceI am LGBTI pretend that there is no worries, happy LifeI feel So much Hatred, so much doubtI touch NothingI worry what the future holds,I cry when I see young adults, and what their going throughI am LGBTI understand Believes, Religion, LawsI say Everyone has the opportunity to live and speak what's on their mindsI dream that someday, no longer will there be tears because of me, but hearts and eyes to open up and acceptmeI try to show the equality in sex, race, color, origin.I hope HAPPINNESS!!!I am LGBT

 

 I Pretend, "Worries do not exist, Everyone is happy living".

I Feel, "So much Hatred, So much Doubt".

I Touch, "Nothing".

I Worry, "What the future has in stock for us".

I Cry, "When I see young adults struggling trying to find the path around this,

When there isn't."

I am LGBT

 

I understand Religion, Beliefs', Laws, etc. 

Why can't they understand us?

Everyone should have the opportunity to 

Live life,

Laugh aloud, 

Love whomever!

I dream that someday,

There will be no more Tears of Torture or Sadness,

and Eyes and Hearts wide open with ACCEPTANCE!

Because the truth of the Matter is

I am LGBT, and I am Going No where!

I Am LGBT!
