Topic - LGBT Pride/ Love


Wearing a smile

Instead of a frown

Giving more

Expecting to

Receive nothing

If I do then it’s a blessing

Showing love

And kindness

Sometimes when

I don’t want to

Broken hearted

Smiling through pain

Lighting another person’s way

Making them feel better,

Stronger, and more resilient

Laughing at life

Instead of getting caught up

In the mire

So no one feels like they’re dire

And out of place

Despite their religion, color

Or race

As long as

You love

One another

It’s fantastic

You’re gay
