Straight or Gay?

A poem.

Straight or Gay?

Straight or Gay ?

Am I straight or gay ? I heard you say...

I ask why it bothers you anyway ?

Why judge a man by what's in his heart.

Why judge another when you never walked their path.

I am a sensitive soul, who sometimes drinks herbal tea.

I am not playing a role, I am just me.

I like chic flicks, chocolate and gentle music at night...

Sometimes I choose to walk away instead of too fight.

Am I straight or gay ? I heard you say...

As I smile and think here we go again.

It's funny how we all seem to fit a mould...

As we grow uneducated from blind eyes of old.

I like scented candles, my house is never a mess.

I bare my feelings through words, I take pride in how I dress.

I feel for complete strangers, as if long lost friends...

Yet sometimes I feel I must hide or pretend.

Wouldn't it be interesting if we all dropped our guard.

If we revealed our souls it really isnt so hard.

If we all believed in better let the masquerade go...

Planted seeds of hope and watched as they grow.

If there were no stereotypes, there were no fear.

If there was no shame to be found behind a tear.

I wonder would you think twice before you would say...

Tell me now are you straight or gay ?

I have been writing Poetry since I was a teenager. Now in my late thirties I enjoy it more than ever. I find it a wonderful release and it helps me to free my mind and understand myself and my emotions.
