I have marked the box of love – a poem

September 19, 2017 - 10:12 -- Admin

I have marked the box of love
And survived the survey
I am not gay, that is why

Survival is easy for me
A white man,
Free, at least, of oppression
A retired exploitée
Living on the scraps of super

But for those who have fought
So long and well
And those to come
Can we end this hell?

Embrace love, I did
That is the way
The truth, the light
Keep up the fight

For freedom rings its bell
It chimes for the old ways
And better days ahead
