“Fag’s” a word that’s used by those
Held in check by their fear
They see someone who’s not like them
And so they howl “Queer!”

They’re so wrapped up in their own ways
That anyone who’s not
Into the same things as them
Should be tied up and shot

They act so brave with hateful words
And all their posturing
But warriors see cowardice
With every taunt they sling

They use these words not just for gays
But for the ones in tune
With their “artsy” side, the sculptors,
Writers, those who croon

The ones who notice beauty in
The little works of art
The men who aren’t afraid to cry
When something hits the heart

“You’re such a fag” just says to me
“I am a coward, sir
I am threatened by their courage
So I must hurl a slur

So that my insecure ego
Feels better about me
I’m still a knuckle-dragging ape
Who is not as gutsy

As all the men and women who
I hurl my insults at
Maybe one day I will choose
Respect over combat

Respect for having courage to
Love anyone they want
Even if it means that I
Will make fun, hate and taunt

Respect for those who do not live
To please all those in fear
Respect for warriors who are
Called ‘fag’, ‘homo’, and ‘queer’”

    I know as you many “Knuckle Dragging Apes” and it will be a day of joy when the “Stone Age” is over. Thank you my Warrior Friend for taking up the sword and fighting the Battle with Love!

    Very nice. No one (no matter the lifestyle, interests or personality) deserves the hatred of others. Well put!

    I love this, Miro. It’s a sad testament to our world that people are still hurling cruel comments and placing labels on those who FEEL, who choose to be exactly as they are – even when it might be different from oneself. While it’s uplifting to see changes made, we have far to go. The illusion that lives inside the mind of one who taunts, shuns and criticizes is one that hurts us all. So very true that courage is lacking in such human beings…for could they for one moment step outside the box that keeps them safe, they just might feel the warmth and love that is nurtured by those who are most ‘different,’ open and connected to the beauty of All That Is. Beautifully done, thank you. xoxo

    Say on, Brother Warrior! Love, compassion, sensitivity, creativity, discretion, gentleness should ALWAYS be bowed down to by all those who are true warriors, who are “brave-hearts.”
