Hi all, I wrote this poem because of the sheer frustration I felt at people opposing same-sex marriage. Poetry is how I deal with issues that I care about, so this is a product of that thought. This goes out to all the amazing, loving same-sex couples in the world:
Let me get this straight
gay marriage is bad?
You’re ok with love,
but only if it’s straight,
but not lady-lady or lad-lad?
What’s the difference,
may I ask,
between the union of two souls?
does their gender really matter,
or is your vision just marred in coal?
If love makes the world go round,
why should only you be allowed to spin?
why not if she wants to marry her,
or if he wants to marry him?
How would you feel
If I stopped you from marrying your soulmate,
because of a notion I have,
that narrow minded people are ‘not natural’
and that their minds are bad?
You don’t see me stopping you
from making your marital choice,
Then what makes you think
that on this issue, people need your voice?
I am glad to know that you have your rights,
and your life is going on just fine,
so, please go on living your own life,
and let me live mine.
