Hate of Society



He knew he was different
People could tell
They thought him to be
A demon from Hell
So it went on day in and day out
He lived his life in the echoes of shouts
He was a "fag," he was a "queer"
Still his life held precious and dear
Now he's gone and life goes on
Yet society's hate kills but one
