I feel so abandoned
Amidst the waking of a midnight dream
Locked in, victim of a cave-in
The misty, loosened seams
The seams of my slowly dying life.
Vanishing, leaving with a blink, disappearing
Misunderstood, I find myself forgotten
After all this time, I find myself still hearing
The words of those who haunt me
All because I kissed a girl.
Walking upon the cobblestone paths
Never finding a soul with an ear
Unable to undo the prejudiced wrath
That they, the unforgiving,
Have brought down upon me.
Please, won't anyone listen?
Listen, please! To our woeful cries
To the shouts of those you dub as condemned
Someday you'll finally see into our eyes
The eyes of those you claim to hate.
We are the forgotten.
The ones you all hate.
The ones you claim are evil.
If you try to undo the blinds only you can part
The blinds that hold you to biased beliefs
You'd find that perhaps our kind
Have, just like you, a human grief.
We feel it. Every moment.
Your persecution, your hatred.
Your shouts for "justice".
Your need to eradicate us.
We are human.
We are people.
We are women.
We are men.
Just like you
We have lives.
We have feelings.
And we have hearts.
The only difference is that
We men love men
And we women love women
But what is there to judge?
What is there to want to kill
What is there to want to destroy
What is there inside us
What is there that you hate?
There's no one left.
Only those who are like me
Will live to keep this message
In their hearts and souls
Because hardly anyone tries to understand...
What it is like to be gay.
