If love is so beautiful
How can it be so wrong?
And if it's not right
Then why have we been hurting all along?
If it wasn't meant to be
Then why were we made this way?
And if we were supposed to be happy
Then shouldn't this love be okay?
Why should we torture ourselves
And not be who we want to be?
And why should we be sometimes hated
By our own hurtful society?
Why should we not love
When sometimes there is so little out there?
And why shouldn't we appreciate this
When we are people who care?
But most of all I wonder
Why does it have to be real?
Shouldn't we just accept each other
And be completely honest with what we feel?
Poem I wrote years ago in regards to LGBT struggles in society.
