661 (who?)
They found me slumped over in the school showers
With a towel loosely wrapped around my waist
Scalding hot water was blistering my skin
As I bled from an unspeakable place

A hard-handed teacher dragged me to my feet
With little or no sign of sympathy
For the bruising to my feeble framed ribcage
And the fractures to my identity

I think they all thought that I had it coming
As no one was willing to testify
That the sodomy inflicted upon me
Was something to which I hadn’t complied

Boisterous boys laughing in the corridors
As I shamefully limped throughout the day
Not a thought for the pain that was inflicted
Just worried for what my parents would say

I couldn’t bear it if I saw in their eyes
That I deserved everything that I got
As they are the ones who created my heart
Whether they care for whom it beats or not

So I will take a discriminate beating
If my resolve will help people to see
That I can not be anything more or less
Than the person that I was born to be

Very heart rendering, how many times this has happened to some poor soul, it makes me sick to think of how people could do this to another human being.  And what will the offenders grow up to be?????  Beautifully written!!!

Yeah, there are no winners in these situations. The offenders being brought up that they think its acceptable behaviour and the victim suffering after such abuse.

thanks for the comment and requesting for the group! :)

You nailed it on the head, so very true sadly.

I hope everyone knows... That being a homosexual is completely natural. If it wasn't, then I'd think that all animals would be straight. As a fact, all female koala's are lesbian, and partake in lesbian sex all the time, but only have sex with males if they need to reproduce. So if being gay is as sin, than shall we not make it illegal for all species to be gay? Why does this this blatant labeling, and torture reach only to the human body? Aren't we all some form of animal, only just having a higher IQ than others? So why don't we seperate all female koala's with a male? If it isn't natural then why are these "stupid" animals doing it? Is it because they have no laws against it? And that they love each other? Then why can't we be animals? I'd rather be an animal then a human if we so called "superior" race can't handle each other with making their own choices. Don't we all hate each other?

hey :) thank you for the comment. i agree with your 100%

I remember reading a while back how homosexuality occurs just as much in the animal kingdom as it does in humans. So you are totally right in saying how natural it is :)

thanks again for taking time to read and comment on this

I don't know if this poem is from a personal place or not, but I will still comment.

Facts, words, society, norms, religion, ideas, validity, real, truth, right, wrong, fight, limp, wait, struggle, change, go, moments

The science of the mind, of society.  So factual, right?  "How does blah blah view homosexuality?"  I see!  "So blah blah, beats the homosexual.  A natural or unnatural response."

While is poems, we can see a beauty of everything.  The beauty of sadness, pain, suffering, and reaction is here.  Humans are complex creatures who deal with things in different ways.  I want to reach out, take that person and say.  "How dare you take that beating?"  I would bite him and say "Bite back."

Then the facts and emotions, and emotional survivalist would argue still they turned blue.

I would bite them again.  And again.  And again.
