It’s winter. You’re a homeless youth living on the street.

Reality: For a gay youth living on the street there will be anxiety, isolation, tears, challenges, confrontations, depression, diseases, hardship, loneliness, poverty, violence. Self harm.  

The Importance of Diversity

Being Gay and Political Bigots

Political bigots call for hateful laws

And legislation denies LGBTQ

Existence and identity

Where are the stewards who stand

For Civil – Equal – Human rights?

Everyone is an immigrant on Earth

Everyone leaves footprints in the

Sand and legacies for the future

Each of us are intangibly

Connected

Humanity reminds us to teach

The Golden Rule – But immoral

Religious fanaticism divides

Humanity to keep Gays’

Oppressed – their life

Filled with distress

Prejudice and

Judgment

No – not everyone enjoys equal

Rights- simple human rights

Are denied by political

Bigots and fanatical

Citizens who spawn

Hate chaos and

Disorder

By law – in home and community

So many Lives are destroyed

My friends are denied

Justice, kindness

Love, peace, joy

And mercy

Instead they are treated

With intolerance – cruelty

By law: in home – community

Brutality and hate are

Supported – nurtured

Society closes its’

Eyes and ears

In pain our Gay youth

Seek relief in death:

Society Blinks – A child is lost

Mourned; but their

Cause of death

Ignored

A mother gives birth but the Spiritual

Law and the greater community also

Are responsible for creating a

Healthy-giving living

Environment

Every child needs to feel accepted

Safe and secure, they need to be

Encouraged; they need inspiring

People around them to be the

Best they can be; children

Need to be told_ being

Gay is okay.
