All these kids,

They cry,

Scream,

And *****,

"I WANT FREEDOM FROM MY PARENTS!"


That simple freedom does not concern me.

I want freedom, but not just from my parents so I can stay out late.

I want freedom,

From my peers,

From my family,

From the government,

And from myself.


I want to be free to walk down the halls,

Hand in hand with a girl,

Who I'm in love with.

I want to be able to do that,

With no fear in my heart.

No worries or names called,

Or punches thrown.

I want that freedom.


I want the freedom to be able to bring a girl home,

And show her to my parents,

And tell her how much I love her,

In front of them.

I want to be able to talk to my mom,

About relationship problems,

About the GIRL who broke my heart,

But I cant.


I want the freedom to marry.

To marry any person I choose,

No matter the gender.

Male,

Or female,

It should not matter.

My happiness,

And the way I spend my life,

Is not something that should be voted on,

By those with half a brain.


I want freedom from myself,

To accept me,

And be who I am,

Without any shame.

But I can't do that,

Unless I have the freedom from others,

To be me,

And be happy with that.


I want the freedom to be gay.

Some may complain,

That the gays are already free,

Too much maybe.

But that is not the case.

We're not persecuted,

But we're not free.


All throughout history there has been movements for freedom.


There was one of religious freedom,

When puritans came to the New World from Britain.

A war was started,

And freedom came out with a victory.


There was one of freedom for slaves,

So that they could live the lives they wanted,

And not have to be owned,

And treated like property,

By another human being.

Once again,

A war was started,

And the slaves were freed.


There was one of freedom for women,

So that women could be the same as men,

Equals.

There were marches,

And protests,

And women rights came out on top.


There was one of freedom for those of color,

So that they can mix,

And mingle,

With the race that whites thought was superior.

There were marches,

And sit ins,

Protests,

And brawls,

But guess who won in the end?


We are working towards freedom of LGBTQ,

lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning/queer,

And one way or another,

We will eventually get our freedom.


Look at all these past freedom movements,

There were always two sides to it.


Which side are you on?

Is it the right one?


This is not the land of the free and the home of the brave.

This is the land of the *** ******* cowards,

And the home of the "You can be free, if we allow it."


I think its about time we either lived up to our motto,

Or changed it.
