Same Love

So this is my first attempt at a rap/spoken-word poetry. Let me know what you think. 🙂


You look at me disgust plain to see.

It’s written on your face,

no disguise,

it can’t hide as you sneer,



jump in fake fear if I ever come near.

But I pity you that’s the shock,

that’s the truth.

Your ignorance is your achilles heel.

See, I don’t care what you think

’cause I’ve been to the brink

and I’ve looked into the abyss

and I’ve come back to this

and I can see your fear for a world you don’t understand,

and I wish I could teach you,

nurture you,

reach you.

Help you to realise that love is love

no matter the type.

It shouldn’t be judged,

or restricted,

or punished.

Love is free.

Love is true.

And if a boy loves a boy well,

who cares if they do?

It’s a gift just to find someone to share in your life,

So why should we judge whether that love,

or another,

is right?

Dying Thoughts of a Non-Believer

Staring blankly at the door of death,

Feeling confused by the thoughts in my head,

Is this really my time?

Is this how it ends?

Will this lead me to heaven?

In my faith this depends.


I never saw God,

Never turned to the light,

All I had was the darkness,

This doesn’t seem right.

To throw myself forwards into the unknown,

To leave what is dear and leave behind my broken home.


The silence is calling,

It whispers strange things,

Realisation is dawning,

As I stare into the abyss.

Can’t believe what I’m seeing, is this heaven or hell?

Of that I’m unsure but there’s just one way to tell.


So I’ve made my decision,

Into the silence I’ll go,

But don’t grieve for me darling,

There’s one thing you should know,

That I have my regrets of the things that I’ve done,

But I know in my heart you were always the one.
