Freedom? by emoturtlefrk Freedom? by emoturtlefrk
America,
You've lied to me.
You are not free, you are nothing but lies and broken promises.
Why are you called free, if we are beaten and harrased for loveing someone of the same sex?
Why are we not free to be who we want? Don't lie and say that we are. If we were then everyone would live their dreams.
Why aren't we allowed to marry who we want? What's so wrong about being in love with the same sex?
When will you change your mind and actually let us be free?
Each day i live here i hurt more and more.
To be in love is all i ask without being beaten and bullied.
It's only 1 difference. Why must i go through life suffering over something i can't control?

~A proud and confused lesbian

*hugs* Trust me, been there done that. Came out as bi when I was 16 and was teased mercilessly for it. Lost some cool chick friends because they were afraid I would "fall" for them or something.

Love how you used Lucy from Elfen Lied in this piece.

Adding this to my faves. Your poem made me tear up a little.

:) i'm glad you appreciate it and i'm sorry for the friends you've lost
if you ask me, and i don't mean to be rude, but i think they were being a little immature.
they could just say they aren't interested is all then life moves on :hug:
i hope life gets easier for you somehow

I am not a "lesbian"...
But I have a uncle that is gay...
And I care about him as a person...
Why can't people accept people for who they are instead of letting their fear get in the way....
Freedom means to be free...
Not crucify others for being who they are and expressing how they feel....
It is like the people who are against the freedom to marry who they want are almost crossing over into a part shall Cu Clux Clan...
Except they are not killing them.....
I wish there were others that feel like I do.....
