Gay. Faggot, Carpet muncher.
They say my "kind" are unholy souls
They tell us our ways are wrong
Making us feel like we don't belong
Like we're inhumane
Because in the majority of society
It seems homosexuality is an abnormality
Because the Bible clearly states it's supposed to be Adam and Eve
Not Adam and Steve
But what makes your love so much more sacred?
Is it because the scriptures give it a stamp of approval?
The same scriptures that condemns you to the same fate as us
"Condemn not and thou shalt not be condemned"
You use the bible against us when it works to your advantage
Yet you turn away from it when it comes to your own sins
Using selective reading to support a theory upheld by hate
God did not intend for his written passages to be used to discriminate
So the next time you form your lips to spew words of Ignorance
Think of this
What if those words of hate were being spewed at your sister, brother, son or daughter
Day in and day out they endured the verbal slaughter
" You're disgusting. A Freak."
They've endured the abuse for so long and they've grown weak
Never told a soul "I'm fine" they lied
Even though they were slowly dying inside
Until one day... they give up on life
Cross around the neck, gun to the chest
The words fall from their lips: Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I shall fear no evil
And as they pull the trigger they are filled with the sweetest bliss
As they are caressed by death's kiss
They are finally freed from the shackles of society's ignorance
Which constantly reminded them that being gay is not okay
They'd rather be dead then have to endure the pain
of the words that were fired at them like bullets to the brain
Words of hate targeting them just because they were gay
So many empty spaces in their body that were filled with self hate
All they wanted was acceptance, to be open and free
From the discrimination and ridicule that has been repeated throughout history
Will you choose to repeat the mistakes of the past
ridiculing and treating us as second class?
Or will you choose to rise above society's hypocrisy and join our fight for equality?
Will you help us make a change?
