For Love



I was Born for love,

not the programming of hate, you have taught me.

For, in telling me, my sensitivity is an illness;

For, in telling me, I didn’t look right, I didn’t wear the right clothes,

I didn’t act my gender,,,

You taught me to hate myself.

When I spoke my truth and you laughed,

or silenced me with threats,

and buried me in lies;

You taught me to be angry.

But now,

Now I See.

I see how Diamonds are made.

So, I rise from the pressure

and the heat,

and I surface in my Clarity;

For me and for others

who see through the Crap.

I was Born for Love.
