Homophobes


More by this author
There are those who laugh at my sexuality,
choosing to oppress my individuality
labeling me a queer to be
despised throughout society,
I used to fear
being queer,
giving in to the hate of the straight
men of my age,
never able to gauge
the beauty of who
i was, nothing to do
but resign to the fate
they had chosen to designate,
so they thrive
off the pleasure they derive
from the pain
as they chain
me to the wall,
trying to make me fall
into the snare
as i try to fly into the air,
I’m done caring what other
people think, why should i bother
to impress
people who cause me more stress,
honestly i hate that straight
guys can harass gay guys in this state
and make them quit school,
because they think they’re so cool,
and that were a bunch of faggots,
when they’re a bunch of bigots
who can’t get a life and need to shut
up because we didn’t choose to be this way so butt
out of ours, so we don’t make ourselves cease
to exist and can live in peace

Loved it! Just one problem: People who make fun of gays are not MEN They are IMMATURE BOYS who think it's FUNNY to ruin other people's lives just because they are DIFFERENT. I've seen it happen to my friend, and I am SO NOT happy about it. But back to the writing :) The rhyme scheme was awesome like RoseMonster said :) And I loved the message as well! Great Job and Keep Writing!!! :):):);)

Hey! Just wanted to pop in and say that I really enjoyed this! I love the rhyme scheme, and it has a very nice conclusion and a strong, firm message. I myself have never dealt with homophobia (though I am homosexual myself) but I think this would be a good response to those who can't see beyond their biases. Good job!
