SPECIAL NOTE: We will return Later today IF the Supreme Court releases it’s decision on Marriage Equality today.
We at LEAP AUDIO are proud of the work we do, but when one of our contributors submits a poem like this… well we just have to share.
You know….you’d think our society would openly accept all types of love. You’d think our religions would say that the god up above. The god said to of created us wouldn’t be so Hanes. To send the ones he created to hell just for being themselves. Just the thought makes you feel like nails are bearing down from the shelves. If a gay boy wasn’t meant to be why is it that he’s here beside me? If gays are to go to hell then why do they care for even the ones who say they’re nothing more than an evil spell. An evil spell that they say could cause mayhem every single day yet they don’t realize the only ones causing mayhem is they. They who say to treat those the way you want to be treated but then turn around and say they also don’t want to be hated though they don’t agree if 2 men were to of dated. Why is it illegal for gays to get married in a few states but it’s legal in all states to have these hateful dates. Dates that preach hate and bigotry when instead could be teaching about loves geometry. Why is there so much hate in our country when we should have purity. Why is it that religion says gays should go to hell? What about the gay boy in class who gets nothing but sass from the rest of the mass. The mass of students doing nothing but showing their rudeness to a young boy who just wants joy. What about the couple who wants to get married but finds that the masses are varied. Varied on a thin line of being fine vs being a crime. How can they say that it’s against what getting married symbolizes when gays only want to show how love has no bound sizes?! They say it’s a persons right to be hateful and unlawful while you sit by and watch as normal people start to feel like they’re gonna die. The bottom line is that gays are fine. So what if they don’t share the same belief?! It’s not like you’re their chief! How is gay marriage affecting your heritage?! How can they keep them from being protected when they also want to be respected?! So tell me this…how can they be remiss? Remiss to just dismiss these gays with bliss. To not recognize that it isn’t a choice but a voice. A voice saying that love shouldn’t be dictated by anything from up above. And so now I want all of those who are gay to stand up. Stand up and say I am proud to be gay! Don’t you all hear what these gays say?! They will not be filled with dismay! And i hope that things will go your way…instead…of towards decay.
