Day of Silence

I should’ve prepared
For this vow of silence
But I had no idea
Today was for alliance

You’re bullied and torn
And words are buried
By the close minded ones
Who make themselves adversaries

Why tear down others
Because of their love
Some dude doesn’t like them
Who isn’t here but up above

A coward’s excuse
Is to say, “What if it spreads?”
You were gay from the beginning
Don’t deny what’s in your head

We are humans and lovers
Belonging to the same nouns
You fear my love of both genders
Turn that frown upside down

Because I won’t love you
If you can’t love humans back
We are silent today
Due to the acceptance you lack

Dedicated to the GLSEN Day of Silence
I promise to participate next year

Day of Silence

Shh...
Hush...
Don't speak those words,
We don't want to hear them.

Remember us...
Do not forget...
Though we are gone,
Our memory remains.

Don't joke...
Don't laugh...
It's not funny,
The pain we deal with.

You ridicule...
You mock...
Who are you to judge us,
Have you forgotten we're human too?

This Day is for us,
When our pain and loss
Speak through the silence of others.

Rainbow Colored Camouflage

Rainbow Colored Camouflage


Screaming from within a day of “silence”
quieting all questioners
hiding beneath
the exclusive inclusion of
Rainbow Colored Camouflage

Demanding
a safe space,
a free voice,
equality
in all things.

Liberated victims
who would vanquish
all who disagree,
question,
inquire.

Intolerant
of those who
do not understand
such defiance.

Valiantly defending
a Rainbow Flag
that waves
beneath another,
pursuing a dream
that all should awaken too.

Hidden
in the folds of Rainbow Stripes
bloodstained stitching
mending hearts
within a
Rainbow Colored Consciousness.

funeral

Funeral
A gray day, long and windy
A long line, sad and weary
A loved one lies still
Never to celebrate again
All there wear black
All there morose and mourning
A day of silence
A day to say goodbye

Poem for the Day of Silence

When you ask me to speak up in class,
You may not realize that I have my reasons for staying silent.
When you tell me not to be a “crybaby”,
You may not realize that I have my reasons for crying.
When you tell me that my dreams are stupid,
You may not realize that I have my dreams for a reason.
When you tell me to shut up 
You may not realize that I already have
Because I am silenced
Silenced by you.

A Day in the Sun

I long for silence
a day in the sun
when all these harsh whispers 
are quiet and undone

I hear an angel somewhere
calling falling
softly in his rage of flight
burning out in the twilight


A prayer in silence is a blessing
a life lived hard through the testing
what can the blind be missing
when god is in the art of kissing

A portrait of a saint
a face in the mirror
my heart in hand
my love inferrior

A tree comes down
a tree now dead on ground
i heard it cry yesterday
now no sound or anything to say

Is this the earth i wanted to save
full of broken hearts and unmarked graves
I bled so long, i've done such wrong
every broken life was a job well done

Soldiers in handbags
sally forth sally forth
a cross in a fist
to show you god's worth

I guess it makes some sense
for some to show some recompense
for all the things they had done
oh god the things they had done

For just one day of silence
a day  in the sun
where I didn't hear a gunshot
when we weren't killing someone

A DAY OF SILENCE

I know it will be quiet when you come:
No wind; the water breathing steadily;
A light like ghost of silver on the sea;
And the surf dreamily fingering his drum.
Twilight will drift in large and leave me numb
With nearness to the last tranquility;
And then the slow and languorous tyranny
Of orange moon, pale night, and cricket hum.

And suddenly there will be twist of tide,
A rustling as of thin silk on the sand,
The tremor of a presence at my side,
The tremble of a hand upon my hand:
And pulses sharp with pain, and fires fanned,
And words that stumble into stars and hide.

True Love

True love is when you don’t look at your wife’s past.
But you envision the future, trying to make the relationship last.
It is when you fight and sometimes cut the string between you, the rope.
But always come back to each other and never lose hope.

True love is when your spouse doesn’t talk to you for a day.
They were angry yesterday and had too much to say.
But when morning dawns you realise you can’t live without your love.
That one day of silence feels the same as having food but choosing to starve.

True love is when you choose to listen to your wife.
Not necessarily because she knows too much but because she is your life.
And if “your life” is sad, then you will spend the day in a bad mood.
Listen to me all husbands, love a woman as you should.

True love is when you say sorry for making your wife cry.
And she doesn’t know why you repay her love with sorrow. She keeps asking why.
But say a sincere apology and soon your wife tears will turn into tears of gladness.
And you will both laugh afterwards about that past moment of madness.

True love is when you choose to forgive even if it would hurt.
Because God is love and he says we should, forgive your wife, it’s never too late.
True love is when you look at your wife, and love her afresh from the start.
After you read this poem, please my brother, go and mend her broken heart.
