2014-06-29-_70965400_ugreutgayThey are the places we’ve found ourselves

Trapped in circumstances

Unable to live the lives we want

To please their idea of normalcy

Most of us bend and break

Avoiding what we crave to touch

But I tell you for yours and everyone’s sake

Let God be the Judge


They make us feel unworthy

Of living our lives as we please

They say we defile our bodies

Worse are we, than the deceased

They are scared of what they don’t know

And THAT alone is much

What I know is they should let go

And let God be the Judge


We are family and friends when we live the life they want

Not realising that their role is to love and not want

And when they hear of us, they hold a silent grudge

Instead of loving still, and letting God be the judge.


We are not the minority

We are the ones brave enough to be true to ourselves.

And to those who live in denial and self hate

I urge to work those emotions out

One whisker at a time

To ignore the chastisement of self and others

And to let God be the Judge

And if he made you – us the way we are

Straight, upright and unbending to the will of the world

        Erm auntie mushin, shade doesnt have singular or plural in this context.

        So he is not throwing A SHADE, he is THROWING SHADE. I mean you went to expensive schools anyway so that must have come from your keypad.

        Also, if one pretends not to see something they dont also comment on it no?

    The day man thinks less of what people say or think of him, the day man stops seeking validation,cheap sympathy and approval from others except God, that’s the day he can be said to have grown, physically and more spiritually. The fact remains that man will always get dissapointments from men. Its only God in Christ that never fails. He is the friend that sticks closer than a brother. If one doesn’t find Him,all remains vain, and a mere chasing of shadows. Affluence, good health and long life are not even His greatest gifts to man but ETERNAL LIFE.

      Doesn’t mean you shouldn’t think of what people say about you here when you go all psycho-homophobic and say ridiculous stuff. Most times you think adding “God” to your comments makes it more valid or powerful. *sighs*
      Even God himself will frown at some of your comments here.

      Gad, you sound a lot like my mother when you start playing this tune. I will however, ask you some questions.

      Seeing how Jesus is the one and only true friend we need in life, do you have human friends? Because by logical deduction, we should only stick with that which is best for us, right? So, is Jesus your only friend or do you have human friends?

        @ Mitch, since I sound a lot like your mother(according to you), why not put your “intelligent” question to her instead? Or are you saying you trust an online personality more than the one through whom God gave you life and nurtured you?

        May 10, 19:37 Reply

        @ Pinky,your penchant for ‘follow follow’ is not new.I will be surprised if you are able to explain your reason for screaming love,love owing to Mitch,s comment.A guy technically called his mother childish and you are screaming “love,love”. @ Mitch, the most tragic thing to happen to a man is to think he is full of wisdom when he lacks it. from the little you have said of your mum,i have no doubts that God blessed you with a wise mother,learn from her. show her my initial comments and let her decode them for you even though its clear enough.Im a xtian,I cant pretend because atheist are here too.my religion says i should always talk about the love of Christ,savior and friend. Mitch,im sure @ some points in your life you referred to God as your father,does that make your dad non-existent?

    @Gad, you just answered my question. Its the same thing my mother does whenever I ask this question.

    Funny how your avoidance says a whole lot more than any outright answer you’ll give me.

    @Kel/MacArdry, I have Jesus in my life. I, however, do not make a show out of it, rubbing it in the faces of others. We took Teflondon up for harping about his family’s wealth. Gad’s constant harping about his relationship with God is distasteful in that there are not only Christians but also people of other religions on this blog. The Christians aren’t fools or hypocrites who can’t defend their relationship with God. They just know that your spiritual life is your PRIVATE business with God, not an opinion to be shoved down other people’s throats.

        Then again, I quite forgot that it is to be expected from old folks like you. Senility makes aged people think and act like children so…………..tsk tsk!

      @ Mitch,if you know Christ and see him as not worthy of talking about,Im sure he is different from the one I know. The Christ I know gave all christians a marching order to talk about His love to all everywhere.think of the younger gay guy struggling with his sexuality.how can he know that God doesnt hate him but loves him passionately if i dont talk about His love.have you spared a thought for the depressed,the fainthearted and those who thinks suicide is the next escape?how can they know of Christ,s love if those who found Him refuse to share His love? you accuse me of bragging about my spirituality,though its worth bragging about but i cant remember doing that in my comment.I HOPE U DON,T BELONG TO THE GROUP THAT READS TO COMMENT RATHER THAN TO UNDERSTAND!

    A female friend once recommended the book ‘Men are from mars, Women are from pluto’ to me.
    I couldnt agree more plus my experience of dudes that i flex with (straight and Bis) that women
    style of communication is totally different from men, from wits, ‘bitchiness’ emotions, banters, way way
    different. Let dudes be dudes and babes be babes, less confusion.

    I believe it is a day set aside to educate the ignorant minds, no?
    Lgbtiq gives above phobes some ammunition when they allowed
    heterosexuals to referred to themselves as straight and lgbtiq
    peoples as queer, gay(happy go lucky)., a close opposite of straight
    which is bent.

    Lgbtiq have work to do including making effort to stop reinforcing
    stereotypes. No wonder so much internal homophobia.

    The disservice lie on us (lgbtqi) when we dance to the heterosexual tunes whey the say or insinuate
    that gay dudes are bitchy and we perform to to their expectation. The onus lies onus to gather our acts
    and behave accordingly.
    Personally, i dont see any inferiority wth the way the acronym lgbtqi spreads out unless we are trying to give cisgendered people another weapon to attack us. The next you will hear is oh ‘the lgbtqi folk have identity crisis. IDAHOT is an acronym am not familiar with. Yet to check what their ideology is all about
    and how they are representing us.
