Through Black and White Eyes

Before Bedtime thoughts.


The same as gender.

The same as love.

The only difference is,

How it is being said.

Sex is only a word.

Yet it can strike someone down like lightning.

Sex is said to be paired with someone of the opposite sex.

That if that rule is not followed, that person is an outcast.

That sex can only be one way,

who are you to judge?

It might be just a word

But cuts deeper than a knife.

Lesbian, Gays, Bisexual and Transgender.

There are no difference than us; the straight.

People only see them through black and white eyes,

they ignore the color they bring.

Bright with joy, they each shine like the sun and moon.

They show love, pride and peace.

Yet like all brilliant lights, they eventually flicker and die.

They die

Because of what they believed to be right.

Because others didn’t agree.

Because others said no.

Because others called them freaks.

Because others said they were not allowed.

Suicide. Sadness. Emptiness.

It consumes their light and they lose the fight that they worked hard to achieve.

Because of what others see,

Through the black and white eyes.

We are not in a position to judge.

    I always thought it was funny… much time some people spend on going against LGBT rights. Well, if you have that much time, why can’t you just do your job or work on that project your boss gave you……..

    Isn’t it funny that some care so much about others. They say that life is too short to care about others and here we are, criticizing them all…….based on something that they don’t even grasp completely……

    Humans are such funny beings. Humans are such dangerous fools.

      Thank you for reading. I was debating on the same with a friend through text message. He was all judgy about gay people saying that they should be allowed to do what they do because its a sin. So I asked him, ‘you sin everyday. If you are accusing gays of having sex, then stop having sex with girls too because that’s fornicating. ..
      You know there’s no small sin or big sin….we are all sinners in the eyes of God.
      So we shouldn’t judge..whether it’s allowed or not! We are all gonna be judged differently.
      Thank you for reading and commenting..

    Exactly! Sometimes I feel that we just need something to go against, you know? Just something to oppose. It’s as if we don’t want to get along……
    (It’s the first time I’ve written such long comments………….!!)
