a christian lgbt poem about some hateful things said to me at lunch today.

i understand, just rethink

i understand, just rethink by me

as i sat there

as i sat there eating my lunch

as i sat there eating my lunch arguing about the right way to sit

as i sat there eating my lunch arguing about the right way to sit i seemed to attract

as i sat there eating my lunch arguing about the right way to sit i seemed to attract a person, or gnat

as i sat there eating my lunch arguing about the right way to sit i seemed to attract a person, or gnat of whom had very little wit

she said to me

she said to me of words so harsh

she said to me of words so harsh i do not wish to repeat

she said to me of words so harsh i do not wish to repeat and i felt a tear

she said to me of words so harsh i do not wish to repeat and i felt a tear how i wish i weren't here

she said to me of words so harsh i do not wish to repeat and i felt a tear how i wish i weren't here i sat and stared at my feet

she repeated a line

she repeated a line that had been said many times

she repeated a line that had been said many times especially to my face

she repeated a line that had been said many times especially to my face and i was fine

she repeated a line that had been said many times especially to my face and i was fine until i cried

she repeated a line that had been said many times especially to my face and i was fine until i cried and for this i did brace

"homosexuality is a sin"

"homosexuality is a sin" "you must repent in order to win"

"homosexuality is a sin" "you must repent in order to win" "if you're not too fond of burning hell"

"homosexuality is a sin" "you must repent in order to win" "if you're not too fond of burning hell" "change your ways, before there you dwell"

i sat there, dumbfounded

i sat there, dumbfounded looking at this girl

i sat there, dumbfounded looking at this girl my hand turned into a fist

i sat there, dumbfounded looking at this girl my hand turned into a fist of which i could not unfurl

i sat there, dumbfounded looking at this girl my hand turned into a fist of which i could not unfurl the hatred in my heart affected me too deeply

i sat there, dumbfounded looking at this girl my hand turned into a fist of which i could not unfurl the hatred in my heart affected me too deeply and i knew that after lunch, i'd be weeping

this is not the way that true christians act

this is not the way that true christians act they accept, they love, no matter what the fact

this is not the way that true christians act they accept, they love, no matter what the fact i wanted to tell her this

this is not the way that true christians act they accept, they love, no matter what the fact i wanted to tell her this i just couldn't resist

this is not the way that true christians act they accept, they love, no matter what the fact i wanted to tell her this i just couldn't resist but instead, i dropped it and left where i sat.

i still cannot comprehend

i still cannot comprehend what was going through her head

i still cannot comprehend what was going through her head i've been pondering through this hour

i still cannot comprehend what was going through her head i've been pondering through this hour and i ignored her words' power

i still cannot comprehend what was going through her head i've been pondering through this hour and i ignored her words' power and focused on me

i said, "am i doing wrong?"

i said, "am i doing wrong?" god wouldn't reveal that, but i stayed strong.

i said, "am i doing wrong?" god wouldn't reveal that, but i stayed strong. i feel my friend tap my shoulder

i said, "am i doing wrong?" god wouldn't reveal that, but i stayed strong. i feel my friend tap my shoulder lifting the boulder

i said, "am i doing wrong?" god wouldn't reveal that, but i stayed strong. i feel my friend tap my shoulder lifting the boulder and telling me, "it's alright."

"we might not have the answers, but if we repent"

"we might not have the answers, but if we repent" "for unholy existence, heaven will save us a tent"

"we might not have the answers, but if we repent" "for unholy existence, heaven will save us a tent" "if we pray harder, and lean on him"

"we might not have the answers, but if we repent" "for unholy existence, heaven will save us a tent" "if we pray harder, and lean on him" "he will not leave us on a whim"

and so i smiled, even if weakly

and so i smiled, even if weakly and felt the presence of the lord, he was there with me

and so i smiled, even if weakly and felt the presence of the lord, he was there with me i closed my eyes, and began to say

and so i smiled, even if weakly and felt the presence of the lord, he was there with me i closed my eyes, and began to say "the lord'll protect anyone, even the gays"

i was not scared anymore

i was not scared anymore just a little upset

i was not scared anymore just a little upset pondering why such an awful thing

i was not scared anymore just a little upset pondering why such an awful thing would be said, and yet

i understood that she'd tried to be good

i understood that she'd tried to be good and that's not my problem to bet
