this is not poetry

FREE WRITING

12
you see i recently
stumbled upon a piece of 'poetry'
by a user i wont name
but theyve already gained fame
its not from amazing writing
its from callously spiting
you see my good sir
you might not have used a slur
but homophobia comes in many flavors
you might have a savior
but jesus said to love everyone
not just the cishet white ones

man, youve really outdone yourself
writing up a storm trying to 
'express yourself'
but check yourself
your little 'poems' 
are hurting someone else
you need to understand
that we're all in God's plan
if God made us gay 
then we're not supposed to change
which is good
because, y'know, we can't

now to address the other stuff
you think people hate you cuz youre christian
and ive had enough
you cant go around saying 
homophobic and sexist stuff
and think we hate you
because youre white
yeah that sounds rough
well man, you gotta tough up
imagine getting jumped in the street
because youre just trying to be yourself
and some bigot didn't like it
some people dont have to imagine it
because they live it
and youre adding fuel to the flames
you may not be calling us names
or the reason some of us are slain
but you are part of the problem
because while you think youre awesome
you think everyone who isn't like you
is just a bug under your shoe
but were real people and were not afraid
to stand up to your 'i love everyone' facade
because behind every bigot
theres a douchebag
who wants attention

your 'poem' isnt poetry
your 'beliefs' arent beliefs
its all bigotry
and im sick of it
 
a big ol' middle finger to the person this is directed at, you know who you are.
this might get taken down but i will never stop standing up against bigots who try to invalidate me and other minorites.
