I’m Still Gay

18 Nov

You can isolate me, seclude me and ostracise me. I’m still gay.
You can mock me, ridicule me and bully me im still gay
You can shame me, blame me, flame me. I’m still gay.
You can throw me off a rooftop, cut me limb to limb, bleed me to death. I’m still gay.
You can hate me, stone me, crush me. I’m still gay.
You can curse me, troll me, try to cure me. I’m still gay.
You can abhor me, try to fix me, condemn me. I’m still gay.

You cant stay silent about my love
Neither will i.
Throw me from the rooftop and i will shout I’m gay.
I will not repent my love

Hate me for who i am
But i will not turn the other cheek
I will accept you all the same

You may put me to sleep
And spit on my grave
But my spirit will still be gay

And i will call and call for generations to come
And you will still seek the devil in my love
For you have tasted the forbidden fruit and died a thousand deaths.

Whilst i have danced a single life and sang a million songs.

What the modern world has taught me

14 Nov

What the modern world has taught me.
The OMG! At 43 i realised fashion is a 20 year cycle
Sports is a multi billion dollar industry, wages of yesterday stars were paltry
Religious people create exclusivity, pushing boundaries and animosity,
Individuals who call for diversity, use the term intersectionality, not realising words spoken were heard in history
Political parties making promises, once they’re in, shun responsibilities
Media thrives on academia lies, social media hurts the eyes,
Addictions & celebrities feed anxieties
Television exploits the reality
Work life balance is a fallacy
Zero hour contracts supports the aristocracy
While poverty spreads there is no democracy
War takes young lives aggressively, those at the top sell lies relentlessly
Patriarchy takes priority in society
Matriarch leaders smell like the monarchy
Emergency services waiting times are lengthy
Educational institutions creating academics with self made theories
Debts drawing people in to commit heresy
Immigration stories sound like similies
Housing crisis provides no safety
Relationships crumble because there’s no stability
Love holds us together
Push for connectivity.

 

 

 

 

We are all fallible

7 Oct

We are all fallible
We all have our foibles & flaws
We are the Spirit & The Light

We are damnation & devils
We are designed to destroy
We are the Compassionate & The Heartfelt

We are the guns of glory
We are the gullible & grief stricken
We are the Survivors & The Soul

The State of Humanity

24 Sep

I despair at the state of humanity
Those without faith questionning religiosity
Those with religion frowning on sexuality
Those faux superiority spitting on ethnicity
The able bodied mocking those with disability
The patriotic bowing down to patriarchy
Social class creating a world of exclusivity
Selfie absorbed people can’t create harmony
Narcisstic souls break down savagely
When questioned on their “individuality”
Highlighting the differences deliberately
When humans should focus on similarity
When we build a global community
Only then we might achieve equality

When you want to say I love You

10 Aug

When you want to say I love You
But can’t find the words
Your heart fills with pride
And it feels fit to burst
The mouth runs dry
Because you know it’s not a lie
Eyes smart with water
Precious moments are not on a meter
Questions run through the mind
Like neon lights constantly online
Wanting to embrace but the distance is too great
Time sweeps by
And the words get caught in the maelstrom of life

We Are All Growing Older

10 Aug

We are all growing older
Some grow bitter
Some grow better
Laughter lines turn into wrinkles
Eyes lose their sparkle
Only shine with nostalgia
Tight jeans become rigid genes
Supple limbs become arthritic hymns
Singing of pain and discomfort
Sweet quiet voices become loud angry noises
Deafening the care giver
Irritating the partner
Sweaty hot love becomes dirty cold words
Deep conversations become short sharp snaps
Of instructions and prompts
The Great Outdoors becomes a walk in the yard
Gym work out and Instagram
Becomes a filtered memory
As glamour fades and old age raves
