The One Who is Different, Looks the Same

Location

He is brown hair and brown eyed.

He is tall and thin. 

He does not have a single blemish on his face.

He has no warts.

He does not smell. 

Why does everyone avoid him?

He walks hand in hand with his lover.

They go to the movies and eat at fancy restruants.

They danced and matched at prom.

Why does everyone call him a faggot?

His parents are worried.

His friends notice him decline into a deeo depression.

Why cant we all just be accepting...

of a man with a man?
