Poem: Being Queer

No matter how
accepting society
becomes it’s hard being a
You feel you’re not part of
like you don’t belong

Queers and gays are not
sexual deviants,
No, we’re not missing any

Being Queer is not evil

It’s not a sin, wrong,
weird or strange,
It’s not a phase or
something we can

No one should have to
hide who they truly are,
We are not retarded no

After all we are part of
the human race,
Your opinion shows all
