Take a Stand

Take a Stand

A Poem by Xavier Honre

It is time that you stand up for what is right!


Gay is not a Synonym,
F*g is not a name,
Queer is not a label,
And this is not a game.


People do get hurt,
They die every day,
And it only gets worse,
When you turn away.


Maybe you're afraid,
Because someone is diverse,
And you think by helping them,
You'll catch some kind of curse.


It's not okay to let it go,
And forget what you can see.
In the end everyone will know,
The truth you wouldn't  set free.


So do your part and stop the hate,
The power's in your hand.
Respect and love will come your way,
If you take a stand.

wow loved this poem and i would just like to add im lesbian and before i came out someone told me the only thing wrong with being gay is hiding the fact that you're gay and if people would just come out and take a stand the world be a much happier place. So i totally love this poem. great job!

This poem was extremelly well written - it seemed like the rhyming just flowed from your pen flawlessly.
Great job! :)

And although I'm straight, I have many gay friends and I hate watching when they are made fun of or discriminated against simply because of their orientation. Great poem! =D

So very true, We label people to much for who we want them to be when we should just accept them, well said and weell written.

Thank you for posting because this is so true. I'm straight, but I don't discriminate against anyone, because of their orientation. I hope people take your message and apply it.
