    Ok...so...I tried to write on a very sensitive topic...its a controversial issue...Homophobia...I expect a lot of negative comments as well...but I'll request you to bear with me for the time being...you may choose not to read this article if you find it offensive or not suitable to your taste...You have your own opinions...and I have mine...I have simply shared mine so as to support the LGBTQ community and to sympathize with their plight...

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~[ POEM ]~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I walk down the streets...
    Sticking to the shadows...
    Avoiding the crowds...
    The people...
    They smile at me....
    To show how proud they are of me...
    But their smiles hide a disgusted frown...
    All those stares....
    And onslaught of glares...
    It kills me part by part...
    My soul lies there...stiff and stark...
    Hearing those whispers in the dark...
    Making me remember every second of life that I'm not normal...
    The whispers turn into angry shouts...
    I clutch my ears close...
    Trying to drown the shouts out with the sound of my own screams...
    They turn their scornful gazes at me...
    Telling me that I deserve to be punished for my sins...
    That I need to repent for going against God's will...
    That I am an abomination...a freak... in this world of normalcy...
    They dont understand truly..do they..?
    For what is normalcy...
    if not an illusion...?
    Nobody is normal...
    and that's an open secret...
    But people use it as a weapon...
    To shield themselves from the reality...
    Their pretence can be seen through...
    But nobody calls their bluff...
    For all are busy fixing their own masks..
    Nd here I am...
    Getting scoffed at...
    Kicked...bruised...broken...shattered...
    Waking up every morning in cold sweat..
    After reliving each nightmares of my life...
    Monster....Demon....Bakemono....
    These words cut through the silence...
    And believe me they hurt...
    More than you can imagine...
    But...
    Was it really my fault...?
    Was it wrong of me to fall in love..?
    Or was it because the person whom I loved was of the same gender...?
    You all made me watch...
    As you stabbed her in the heart five times...
    Poured gasoline all over her..
    And left her to die....
    How could you be cruel..?
    I tried many a times to steer out of your paths..
    If you couldn't accept me for who I was...
    You could've atleast not bothered with my life...
    But you insisted to poison my life...
    You would kill me every time...
    And revive me so that you could kill me once again...
    Dont you all grow tired of playing this sick game...?
    I've just accepted the fact that..
    The world isn't a place for a person like me...
    A situational pariah...
    And maybe being accepted will cost the sacrifice of countless of misunderstood messiahs...
    But I'll wait...
    Wait until I can feel her again in my arms...
    Wait until I can hear you all hooting and cheering
    When I lean over to capture her lips with mine....
    Instead of hearing those alarmed whispers and distasteful remarks...
    Wait until the world is free of the curse...
    Wait until the poison of homophobia gets cleansed...
    And I'll keep on waiting...
    After playing my part...
    Waiting to get lost in the euphoria of such a world...
    Where Love shall no longer be a sin....
