Love between two women
Or love between two men
Or between a man and woman
Will still remain love
Nothing changes

Why should I be judged
And punished
For feeling such a wonderful thing
Gender is none existent
When it comes to feelings
Love is about what’s inside
Not about your anatomy

Society labels us all
And we shall meet expectations
A girl belongs to a boy
And a boy belongs to girl
But what if the boy
inside is truly a girl
And the girl
Wants to belong to another girl

Why do I need to hide?
Why do I have to feel guilty
Of how I feel
Of who I am
I’m not ashamed
When I say I love someone
Who is the same sex as me
Because I’ve found the one thing
That everyone looks for
Happiness.

    You don’t need to hide its a wonderful thing and the USA is making big strides to get better at accepting it.
