They sit together Hand in hand They kiss each other With their feet in the sand
People that walk by All stop and stare Talk in hushed whispers Why are people so unfair
Just because they are Both of the same gender When they are together They are seen as the offender
But they committed no crime No law has been broken But the way they are treated Can leave them heartbroken
How could it be said That their love is untrue Or that being who they are Is something new
Don't judge people For things they can't change Don't discriminate against them Or call them something strange
*We are all people No matter what That seems to be something That we all forgot
Yesterday was 'Coming Out Day' and I wrote this poem hoping to bring some awareness about it. There are so many people out their who are too afraid to come out because of the prejudice against LGBT+ people or the fear that they will be treated differently. We need to stop treating people differently because of their sexuality or gender, even if you don't mean any harm by it you can make people feel extremely uncomfortable. I hope that one day their will no longer be a need for LGBT+ people to come out, just as there is no need for a heterosexual or cisgender person to. I hope that be can all become equal.
