Fighting To Survive

Fighting To Survive

A Poem by Aliciaa Gay.





"Marriage is a human right, NOT a heterosexual privilege"












Normal girl

So you’d think
You’d never know
If I didn’t let you see
I’m a lesbian
Girls are my desire
Boys are nothing but a pain
Who are you to judge
I didn’t choose to be this way
Honesty is a notion
Chemical  imbalance in the brain
Why should I have to change?
Giving into pressure
I wish would go away
Society has me afraid
To live another day
*
Many mean names
You will call to my face
You just hate me
Because I’m gay
Call me a f*g
Or queer if you will
Your names are hurtful
They aim to kill
I live my life
With him by my side
Why should I have to keep who I am inside?
I may be a guy
But why should I hide
Why do I fear
Letting my true colors shine
*
To some I’m straight
I swing both ways
Why should I choose
Both are great
Call me a freak
Call me what you please
I refuse to let you see
How bad you words hurt me
Bisexual
I’m not afraid
You call me everything
But never to my face
To some I’m perfect
To those who care
Why do I have to change how I appear
I’m normal in my way
This is how I want it to stay.
*
Born a man
A girl trapped inside
Is it so bad
I want her to fly?
I want you to know me
The real me
Outside it is he
Who controls who to be
I want to be here
I was born inside
If only they knew
I’m not a guy
Born with wrong parts
A mix up was made
But why does it matter
I love myself this way
*
Beauty lies within
So I was told
Why should they hide
They deserve to boast
Identity is nothing
Constantly judging
Throwing their feelings away
How would you feel
If society cast you away
*
Easily subsuming
Hard to repair
How would you feel
If you were talked about that way
Beauty is absent
In your judgmental eyes
Hiding the truth
Fit to survive
Give up this game
Nobody wants to play
If only you knew
They cannot change
It wasn’t up to them
They were born this way.

Amen, I am bi-sexual and proud of it. I have a wonderful girlfriend who I love more than anything. Nobody dares judge me, because there are fare 'worse' things to be discriminate about, like rapists, or child molesters. God, I hate people.

I don't understand why everyone is always so quick to judge. I don't believe in same-sex marriage but I'm not going to bash someone because it's what they choose? It's their life. Not mine. If it's what they want, let them be happy. Just because I disagree with it doesn't mean I'm going to resent them for their lifestyle. Everyone deserves to be happy. Who are we to take that right away from them?

'who are you to judge'-indeed who are we to judge...whether one is straight, homosexual or bisexual....its not a choice i think...its an inborn thing...we cant differentiate base on our sexual preferences...because in the end..we are all human beings...
this is an awesome poem...i love it!

Like chris said, i like the passion but i disagree 100%. I see love and marriage as only between a man and woman. I see homosexuality as a defect in the brain that must be fixed. Yes it is wrong to persecute and be cruel to them, but i also see it wrong to promote a defect and see it right. Nice poem, passion always shines bright in poetry.

We are given free will to make our own decisions and if we are wrong or right we are the ones who take the prize or pay the penalty. This is very well written.

This poem reminds me of a speech that I gave in my speech class about Gay marriage and how anyone should have the right to marry if they love someone. It shouldn't matter what you are or what you prefer we all have a right to live life the bast way we can. I respect this poem and you for posting it. Well done.

This is great, truly. I believe that people should be able to love whoever they want. I once watched a video on youtube, which was completely a lesbian girl speaking her opinion. It was a long video, but it was a story about Johnny, who lived in a world where girls liked girls and guys liked guys, but Johnny liked girls. To think about that, where everything is different, really makes you open your eyes if you don't support gays. There's nothing wrong with somebody being different than you.

Very true and thought-provoking. It's sad how so many people are judged because of who they are.
