Untitled (May 30, 2016)

I do not stand
Before you
Preaching intolerance
And bigotry.

In forcing you
To be
Someone.

Who
You're not.

In having
Been forced
Myself
Several times.

Thus
Knowing
The pain.

That's felt deep
Within
One's soul.

As
A result
From this type
Of bullying
By others.

All
I ask
From you:

Is an open mind
And a willingness
To listen.

Nothing more.

Otherwise
I shall walk away
My heart sadden.

At the raw power
Of ignorance
Has over your soul.
