In Solidarity We Stand!

We will not hate 
We will, dance on
To the tune of "Love"
Despite these wrongs

For although we're different 
We unite in Pride
We've chosen "Love"
We will, not hide

We're labeled derogatorily 
As being "Queer!'
We've embraced our sexuality 
We will, not fear

For our true colours
They shine so bright
Against prejudice and ignorance 
We'll win this fight!

With bullet-holed hearts 
We mourn... our kin of Orlando 
Their precious souls now...
THE most beautiful rainbow 

All across the world, in the name of "Love"
A community, defiantly, in solidarity stands
Together as one... with our iridescent-hued hearts 
We're proud... to be Gay, Bysexual, Lesbian, Trans

Heartbreak Sadness drips from me like a sodden shawl
heavy upon chest it weighs; breathing drawl
Exhausting questioning frequents my brain,
deafening, the "what ifs"... send me insane!

Violet, fire-ring eyes smart as I type;
smeared, futile words deleted... just one swipe
Cruel darkling abyss, devours my heart;  
once entwined hearts, now galaxies apart 

How do I claw myself out of this hole, 
back to when your sheer soul’s light, my heart stole 
How I wish to, again, bask in your words 
but... for now my heartbreak, remains unheard
