United (James Leland Ludeau III - Lafayette, LA)


it's time to unite
to fight
for the right
to love who we love
shove
what they think in the corner somewhere
away from care
as we lay in this bed
our skin intertwined
i realize we look like a zebra
your smooth chocolate skin against my alabaster skin
how could this be wrong?
how could it be seen as so?
we've put men on the moon
an American lives on every continent on this planet
how can we can we not be tolerant?
our words don't have to divide
they don't have to hide
the love inside of us that will grow
if we show
that words like lights  in the night glow
ignite
our right
to love one another without boundaries
across the seas
let's hold hands and unite
it's our right
one world
one love
one word
whoever you believe created you
it's all the same
we are supposed to treat each other the way we want to be treated
not defeated
my voice rises
through disguises
it's all about love
above
me you blend in with me
be
that someone who accepts it
not rejects it
united we stand
united we fall
this is my call
to spread your words
like feathers on the mountaintop
can't stop
the spread
once the wind takes hold
be bold
hold
his hand
her hand
love your other half
the winds of change are blowing

When I find myself alone in the pain. When I feel like I have absolutely no one to turn to. When I wish the hurt would stop. When I don't know what to do. When I feel completely lost. When my eyes just won't stop welling up. When I don't want to bother anyone with my hurt, my pain. When I know that everyone has other responsibilities. I don't want to interrupt them with my hurt. When I have thought about all of the ways to make the hurt stop. When I am tired of putting on my strong face for others to see. When I am tired of the tears welling up, filling already soggy eyes. When I am tired of the tears, tears that roll non-stop over my cheeks. When I don't want to hurt the ones that I love the most. When it seems like those who are supposed to love me don't get who I am. When no one has any idea of the pain my smile hides. When I am worried about being forever labeled by others. When I am the one that everyone counts on for strength. When I never show any weak…
