Today I have read that “there is no greater evil”…than Australian law allowing me to marry another woman .
Today I read that those who oppose my sexuality are in fact fighting a “war for the future of the human race.”
Today I read a journalist linking the England riots to lesbian mothers.
And of course from the religious I read of the never-ending burning I shall endure.
I want to justify myself.
I want to explain myself.
I want to list all the good in me…all the good I’ve tried to do.
Yet I find myself silent.
Overwhelmed by how much people seem to hate me due only to who I happen to fall in love with.
I’m forty-eight now…and tired of the hate
Left simply feeling deeply deeply sad.
