I want a fag for president, someone who has seen and been through

the worst and has experienced not being accepted. I want a president

who worked to get where he was and lived the exact struggles that

we face. I want a president who is not cliché, I want someone who

accepts diverse communities, who doesn’t have to look one way to

be accepted.

    Your poem is extremely powerful. I am hopeful that in the future we will have a president that is a relatable figure for all, but currently we are so far from that. It’s sad that we have a president that threatens all the freedoms we have worked so hard for. Great writing.
