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.
