I Am That Child

I am that child who watched in horror
as a policeman shot and killed my
Father.

I am that child gunned down
at school; my last words were,
Help me! I don’t want to be here!”

I am that child tortured and beaten
and left in a field to die because
I am gay.

I am that child who listens
fearfully as a rich white lady
on TV says that my life does
not matter.

I am every child who has ever gone to
bed hungry

And cold

And homeless

And illiterate

And sick

Because of the evil of adults who know what
they do.

And If I grow up I will shit on your streets

And feed your prisons

And live as evidence of your contempt for life

And the human spirit

And your bestial need for more.

I am the battered face of your hate.

Look at me!

I struggled with posting this.
Someone sent this to me.
But, I do believe they may be just playing the game while trying to take away

“OUR RIGHTS”.
Hmmm …
Yes I struggled with it but you can see I came to terms with posting it.

I dear friend of mine posted this grap this morning.

He mentioned that he struggle to post it.

I can’t give them a pass either!

These people are sub-human.

They know no shame.

Among other nefarious things, both of them have dedicated their strong efforts to put down, denigrate, disenfranchise and dehumanize the Florida LGBT community.

In my humble opinion, there’s no place for you, yourpresence, your empty words of comfort, during this sad time in the history of Orlando’s LGBT community.

Pack up your hypocritic selves and go back…
