Queer Pride - Kaiden A Ward's image
Share0 Bookmarks 10 Reads0 Likes

Growing up in a culture where

you are not supposed to exist,

you become accustomed to the generosity

of people trying

to fix you, to

force you into a shape

they can understand.


I did not know how exhausting it was,

trying to remain elastic

in a world that demands us to be static,

trapping us in binary boxes where

we wilt in our confinement but,

against societal expectations,

we refuse to suffocate ourselves

for your comfort.


Together, we will stand in the light,

heads held high with unmatched pride

for we have fought too long and

too hard for our right

to be here

to live silently with

our heads bowed low

any longer.
