As Free As a Horse Behind Fences

Gay, Gay, Gay is in the air
Sensuality, lust
Skanky love fogs the sky
Happiness encompasses these souls
Souls known as unruly children

How could this be?
At a place that embraces us
A place known as discrimination’s stomach
Its organs crush me
And squeezes all
Self- pride
Mental stability
Out of me

I’ve re-established my once good manners
Into something of an anti- morality
I’m wild and mother doesn’t care

Smoke in the Sun
Sex in the moon’s gloom
This prison isn’t too bad
Sorry Ma
I’ve bloomed
