This is my house! (poem/book#1)


Bud

This Is My House!

– For homeless youths who were thrown out of their homes because of their identities. Such a heinous crime cannot be justified by any belief system. You have a voice.


I am more
Than you’ll
Ever see.

Close your
Eyes and
You will see.

That light
Inside of you
Is also
Inside of me.

I am not gay.
I am not straight.
I am not trans.
I am not bi.

But if I
Must tell you,
I am just me.

I am my brain.
I am more than
A stereotype.
I am more than
You think I am.
I am enough.

I am not afraid
Of being misunderstood.

I am the
Thoughts of love.

I am a young
And fragile ladybug.

So, please don’t sweep me
Under your rug. (Pause)

No more intolerance
For my mindful noncompliance
With your gender expectations.

No more gaps in my allowance
Or in our peaceful coexistence.

And no means no,
No more violence
Towards my body,
I will not remain in silence.

This is my sanctuary.
This is my house.

This is my house!





Thoughts of the week: “You learn to speak by speaking, to study by studying, to run by running, to work by working; and just so, you learn to love… by loving.” – Francis DE Sales
