It’s amazing how the things that happen to you as a child are often the ones with the deepest-darkest scars.
I believe in happiness, equality & life…I believe in forgiveness.
Forgiveness they say, it’s just like love, you have to feel it, you have to be moved by it, and you have to mean it!
My life is a gift from God. I’ll accept it with a smile, wonder what’s in it with optimism, open it with joy, share it in love, use it to the best of my ability and when I’m long gone…they’ll say I lived it to satisfactory!
My virginity is a gift from my sexuality and as a human with dignity, I need to respect that-The decisions I make, when I’m ready…will determine the outcome of my life and hence influence the way I project myself to my family, my society, my culture, traditions & norms.
I am self-disciplined, but sometimes unable to resist temptation…I have a strong sense of right from wrong, but that doesn’t mean I always follow it.
I cannot control the things that happens to me but I can control the way I react!
Who am I? and Why am I here? Why do I cease to exist?
My identity is so unique, distinct and separable, influence by my own cultural vista and bombarded by the norms of a contemporary society that is predominantly Homophobic.
I’ll always be young. I’ll always be strong. I’ll always fight till no more wrong-because I am Alessandra-defender of mankind & defender of my own kind (LGBT)
Dear friends, One of my pre-university student had written these lyrics to an organization requesting for moral support and to find friends of her type. She showed me the poem and asked to comment on it. My reply to her was that I will have it posted on my site to receive comments from you, who always have an eye 😉
for creative words that bring solace to a solitude soul. With her approval and her choice of pictures I present to you the cry from my dear student’s heart.
