They Laugh
Author: Mere


They laugh at me, they call me names,
They all know now, one of my shames,
They call me things like 'dyke' and 'lez',
I cannot bear what mother says,
All I want is to be accepted, is that too much to ask?
Several years out of my life were hidden with a mask,
I'm not normal, I don't love a man,
I'm about to give up, and I know I can,
Although it hurts, although I cry,
I have to stay tough, because people just lie,
So maybe I'm gay, I don't love like you,
Have something to say? Yeah, f**k you too.

Love comes in many different shapes and forms. You might have heard that before. And its true. Who are they to say that your wrong? No one is good enough to judge you! Remember that! Donít give up! Never do! Iím right behind you girl, no judgement is called upon! An Angel in Tears xxx

they've never felt love...

it shouldn't matter how or who we love. what matters is that we present and receive love to the fullest. some do not understand love ,have never felt or shared or experienced a special love. love must be felt deep in the heart. to be able to love. one must share love with self. continue your love. remember also what matters is that love has touched you and you were able to touch it back. love is a natural deep emotion filled with passion. very powerful read..thanx for sharin'...Terrie*
