I wrote this poem for all the homosexuals who feel alone and judged because of what they are and what they love. The inspiration actually came to me after MY girlfriend was upset because she was made fun of because of us and I got sick of all the discrimination. just a note- this poem has some references to the Christian beliefs and religion. I have NOTHING against that faith, even though I do mention it in this poem. I hold no grudge towards them in any way.

Love Is Love

© Mania Jankowski

We walk the fine line
Between insanity and love
Love is love
Isn’t it?
We are told
We are sinful
Impure
Disgraceful
But what of the people
Who cast us aside
Turn their backs on us
Treat us with their cold whispers and burning hot stares
Like we are a knife
Straight into the heart of the bible
And the “holy ghost”
But what right God
Would toss out his own “children”
Just for who they love?
Love is love.
We are the ones in the pouring rain
Who dance and laugh and smile
Even though sometimes it seems
That the world is against us.
we are different
unique
beautiful; we stand strong
against the names
the pain
love is love
but hate is hate
what is left
for those who feel both
and yet neither?
We play their little game
Living in their world where
Laws and rules
That are supposedly in the best interest
Of the people
Bind us to ourselves
We can cry, feel, dream
We can love, care, support each other
Just the like the next person
Who may be classified as “normal”
We are not the devil
We are not the problem
We are hope
We are love
Love is love
