I went back to my past

where it all started to be the last ,


saw myself being alleged,

criticised. As they claimed I'm sick .

Because my sexuality was all i picked


They told me to act normal

As fondness for the similar sex is

What looks abnormal.


I ponder love is an emotion regardless of gender.

But, fellowship soon became the thought ender.


I was told to act girlish,

Being a tomboy was a notion

They destroyed my emotions.


Keeping away the policies of society

From my feelings and sanity.


Repression of expression is away from apologies, homosexuality is not a mental illness but thinking so is.


Society is different now,

It respects what we accept we are now.


Back in reality of year 2021 ,

Oh what a beautiful dream it was.
