Special Thanks to my Friend John for granting permission to post this poem.
He walks the streets at midnight,
The shadows are his friend,
He shivers from the cold,
And wishes for the end.
He wonders how he got here,
How life had gone so wrong,
Just a day ago they loved him,
He had a loving home.
His body now feels nothing,
He’s numb from the bitter cold,
How could this ever happen.
To someone twelve years old.
What choices have I got?
I have no place to stay?
I really don’t understand it,
All I did was say, “I’m gay.”
His tears had all but ended,
Decisions must be made.
“Do you think that guy will hurt me?
Do you think he’ll really pay?”
Perhaps he’ll see I’m hungry,
And keep me all the night.
I hope he’s not an angry guy,
The type who likes to fight.
They’re children made for hugging.
They’re not some human toy.
I wish I’d found him earlier,
He’s not a throw away boy.
Discarded children are everyone’s responsibility.
Today I am Proud to announce the launching of a NEW AUDIO DRAMA / AUDIO BOOK Project. It’s called
(Loose Ends Audio Productions)
What makes L.E.A.P. Audio different from other companies is not the technology or the talent of our authors, actors and technical team…It is the CONTENT OF OUR STORIES.
You see, L.E.A.P. Audio Will ONLY Publish stories, plays and novels that present GLTBQIAP Teens and Young adults in “NORMAL” roles, No bed hopping sex maniacs, No brooding emotionally crippled stereotypes and certainly not hiding in the closet. These will be fully fleshed out characters with rich back stories, boy friends or girl friends whom they OPENLY ACKNOWLEDGE and DEFEND (when need be) Who are what they really are – NORMAL TEENAGERS and Young adults who simply are GLTBQUIA and Proud of it.
Yes there will be Conflict (real life has conflict) there will be humor (but never at the expense of someones Gender. Gender Prefference or Gender Identification). The humor will come from natural situations.
There will be Heroes…Both “Gay” (to use it as a catch all term) and Straight. There will be villians – Again both gay and straight. BECAUSE THAT IS HOW THE REAL WORLD IS.
We welcome you to follow this space. Our projected LIVE date is OCT 31, 2014 with a Fantastic new Horror Anthology series called “:DON’T LOOK IN THE CLOSET”… While episodes will be released at random intervals because of the nature of Volunteer workers, actors etc, we promise you our BEST EFFORTS to, as was mentioned so often in the 1960’s-1970’s tv, to “Accurately reflect the people and culture” of the GLTBQIAP community and our people.
If you would like to volunteer acting, post producing, writing, web management etc, please feel free and welcome to contact me at email@example.com
