Free To Be Loved

Six flowers lying in an empty hall
Trying to breathe but stuck behind a wall
Their heart wants what,no one really asks
On the verge of death,knows its been long hiding behind those masks
Let the world aside, what's hidden needs to be known
Shared but unaccepted, left well enough alone.

open up your minds ,break these norms
Look through the light,love has no form
The troubled souls, unnoticed by us all
Still in the dark, they weren't meant to fall.
Relinquish the fright,this should be fought no more
Let's build a common ground, where there is no different door.

Trying to share, but the world shuts them down
Shattered them whole and leaves them to drown
I hope one day you fear
How hard it is
When all refuse to hear
Alone at night fighting them all
trying to change
But i shed my tears.

Holding on to a place where no heart shatters
We all stand as one
Nothing else really matters.
Love is love,love is for all
Let them survive,let them be alive.

About this poem

This poem is about the hardships faced by LGBTQ people to come out and be vulnerable to the society. Many mindsets still need to be changed and a person's sexuality is her/his own's which should not be judged by anyone else.
