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,

mock,

laugh,

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?

My Modern Obsession

Here’s a poem I wrote for my creative writing club on the theme of obsession:

 

I can’t sit still.

My fingers itching,

And my toes tapping.

Just one small peek…

No! I mustn’t.

Gotta concentrate on my work.

What’s my teacher saying?

I catch my hand as it moves towards my pocket.

Restrain yourself!

It’s only been five minutes.

Five long phoneless minutes…
