Pride

by Keeley Kaplan 8th Grader

Pride

Parades

Flags

Happiness

Laughter

Gayness

Gays

Lesbians

Asexuals

Aromantics

Bisexuals

Pansexuals

And so many more

We are proud of who we love

Anyone is accepted

The LGBTQ+ community is so accepting

It doesn’t matter who you are

It doesn’t matter what your background is

Or where you’re from

The LGBTQ+ will accept you for you

We will accept you for you

And yes, I just “came out” to whoever is reading this

But I don’t care

I shouldn’t have to in the first place

It shouldn’t be called that

I shouldn’t be judged for who I love

Love is not a choice

Who you love is not a choice

I am abroromantic asexual

If you don’t know what that is, then I can explain

But not in this poem

It’s not fair that we get pushed down for love

When that’s not a choice

Let us be us

Let us show our pride

Let us raise our flags

And then it won’t be so difficult to find rainbows
