We are not the same

"We are not the same"

A man is born to a gentle tune
The world looks on in shame
One day his spirit will fairly bloom
The world is not the same

A woman is born with calloused hands
The world looks upon her in disgust
By her own measure she will stand
Upon her strength the world will trust

While parents share confused looks
And holy men say their prayers
So it is written in the books
These children can not be theirs

And as these two will grow
They are only boy and girl in name
For these two lovers know
Their world is not the same

The boy will look upon another
As the girl will find her own
This boy will never create a mother
This girl, a boy has never known

The young man stands proud
Another such as he, at his side
With them the girl shouts loud
Their true nature, they will not hide

This man and woman shall shine
Their wild hearts, never tame
For gay love, has come the time
That old world, is no longer the same

To this world is born a different sort
And with it a new love came
And now prejudice must be cut short
For we accept, we are not the same

Hi. Thank you for the welcome and kind words. I am not sure what to do regarding contests, and also I am not sure I'm listing my poems with the correct "type"...I have looked at some examples to get an idea, but I feel I'm still relying on a lot of guess work.

Hi. Thank you for the welcome and your kind words. At present I'm just trying to add my works to this site, but in time I may share a little more of myself as you have requested. My primary aim is to try and get a little exposure as writing has been a longtime dream I'd like to see come through now.
