Alienated

Alienated

Shoot me, I’m gay.

Hunt me down, I am an animal.

A bit queer is all I am but hey

That’s enough reason to make it a murder day.

*

Black and gay

I’m the perfect sport.

No need to wait for hunting season.

The chase has already begun.

*

What happened to the constitution?

What happened to fundamental human rights?

Oh my bad! It slipped my mind

I am not human. At least not to them.

*

“You’re not wanted and you’re barely tolerated!”

Okay, point understood. Let me blend into society.

I promise to walk only with my kind.

Oh no, I forget I have a contagious disease.

 I must be locked up in a place made for murderers.

*

I walk this life with my head down

My pride battered, my existence threatened,

My future predestined, my eternity damned.

Despised and rejected, all for a love I cannot control.

*

It’s Mother Nature’s fault

But I pay the toll

All I ask is leave me to go with flow

And live my life as nothing but the protagonist of the day

I need to stop crying because I’m gay

Please keep this hate to the bay.

*

How many more dead queers will we lay?

    Shoot me, I’m gay.
    Hunt me down, I am an animal.

    Perfect summary of the dangerous homophobic nature of this country. I watched a video today of some men who had entrapped a guy who came for a hookup dressed like a girl, with makeup and weave-on and skimpy dress. everything on fleek. Evidently a trans girl. They videoed themselves humiliating this guy with questions and slaps. It was just saddening.

    The day I pray for will come to Nigeria, whether we like it or not. Equality will be ours. Thanks for this iamnotaperv

      @Mandy This is a really sad thing to hear about. At this point all i am begging for is live and let live. How would they feel if we setup a straight man, took him and started beating him? I honestly anticipate the day that 14 years law will be taken down. i anticipate the day that i won’t mentally add 14 years to my current age to see when i’ll get out of jail because i am in love with the same sex.
      Thank you for reading this
