Homophobia will
be over, when "coming out"
is not reported.

[Why do Entertainment mags always have stories when a person, especially an actor or athlete, comes out? Because we are still a long way from it not being gist for the news cycle, I suppose.]

Brave new world 
Reduced to a gossiping village 
Spying on neighbours

Everyone demands a voice

Be Optimistic

Walk with confidence
Let gladness enter your heart
Be optimistic,

Not Pessimistic!
Don’t doubt your progress – come on!!
You can do this, bud!

Rock on, warrior!
Be bold and be positive
You will live longer 

You’ll die in honor
Attitude of gratitude – 
I grant you – happy?

Bridge generation

we heard our parents  
were afraid to deviate;
lost out own dreams fast.

Young ones of today
Grow up in virtual world;
our influence wanes.

we had listened then
we even tolerate now;
we a bridge age group. 

happy that our young
fly on the wings of their dreams;
compensate for ours.

Reject Me Not

(This poem was made on July 10, 2015...at my Grandpa's house...I hope you enjoy this verse that I have written):

Oh Lord of Accord,
Reject me not, nor leave me...
You are much adored

Oh Lord of Accord,
Reflect me not with sadness...
Help me forgive me

Oh Lord of Accord,
Neglect me not, relieve me!
Your love - restored

Oh Lord of Accord,
Collect my tears of gladness
Hear my freedom plea!
