Not Just a Wish

I was born in spring

the season of birth and rebirth

when flowers bloom

and birds start to sing

 

I have a wish I will always blow out my candles for

my wish is acceptance

my wish is love

the end of this long war

 

too many people have cried

too many people have cut

too many people have hurt

too many people have died

 

What is the war?

gender

sexuality

and way more

 

I have something

Mama and Daddy passed something on to me

it's what everybody should be

I am accepting

 

No not my long thick hair

No not my stunning eyes

No not my witty mind

but a certain flare

 

a flare that will start a fire

but not to burn

not ever to hurt

but to aid a situation that is dire

 

my flare wont be contained by your stereotypes or rules

my flare will only do one thing

and that is something I will not give up on

winning this war

 

this will not be a wish

but a mission

and our flares will succeed

 

but it wont be the flare making the decisions

 

I will shave my head for the war

not my flare

I will claw out my sparkling emerald orbs for the war

not my flare

I will always put my smart young mind on the line for the war 

not my flare

 

my flare and many others' will end this

because our flares dont care what anybody thinks is right

our flares

are

our

flares

 

and the only ones who can control them

are ourselves

and this war is dismal to what our flares can end

 

sure I might be a dreamer

to you

but to me

I am someone who can see into the future

 

I'll tell you what will happen

no one will cry

no one will cut

no one will hurt

no one will die

becasue my flares and so many others'

will end this war

 

your choice is

join

or

watch

us

win

 

because our flares are not fueled by hate

but by the most powerful things on this planet

love and acceptance
