rather be me by Linda M. Crate | Pride Month

“hey, queer girl!”
at first those words
but now they are
part of my
because i refuse to let
any rain get me down
my heart is a rainbow full of
love and light—
you tried, girl,
but no one can bring down
a goddess who only knows how
to rise with the sun and shine like the moon
you can judge me but that doesn’t
hurt me only you—
maybe one day you’ll be given
a proper education
in all the things you’re ignorant of,
might be a queer girl;
but i would rather be me
than be anyone like you.
