Poem: Pink, Yellow & Blue

(LGBT History Month has just started and this is my poem for the month.)

 

Pink, Yellow & Blue

 

At some stage or other,

I chose not to hide,

still filled with fear

of the outcome,

could I handle the prejudice?

All that superior complex stuff

that would come my way?

Then my sister reminded me

that I had faced worse

and had survived.

 

All the pink, yellow and blue

I send out into the world

and say join me

whoever you are,

I ain’t scary

and you don’t need to be either.

 

I just felt like I felt,

found a word to explain it,

you know like you

felt what you felt

and found a word to explain it.

So why do you think I’m alien?

If so, you are as much an alien as me,

just being real about it all mate.

 

All the pink, yellow and blue

I send out into the world

and say join me

whoever you are,

I ain’t scary

and you don’t need to be either.

 

I ain’t hard to understand,

a quick Google search is all

that’s required if you care

about people,

would you like people to make you out to be

so complex, so weird, so strange?

Let’s have respect for each other

then let’s be friends,

that sounds nice,

doesn’t it?

Because I don’t want to fight you,

I don’t even want to debate with you

but come at me

and I’ll come at you,

be nice to me

and I’ll be nice to you,

treat me like a human being

and I’ll treat you the same.

 

All the pink, yellow and blue

I send out into the world

and say join me

whoever you are,

I ain’t scary

and you don’t need to be either.
