Religious Inquiries of a Homosexual
They say that God is benevolent
That he is a being of endless love
But that he cannot love me
They say he once walked the earth
Spent time with the lowest of us all
But that I am not worth his time
They say he healed the sick
Cleared every person of their sins
But mine are far too great
They say he forgave an adulteress
Accepted her by his side
But he could never accept me
They say we are all his children
Including murdering thieves
But act like I am the exception
They say a lot of things
But I am beginning to believe
That they don’t know a thing
If what they say is true
Then why have I felt his love?
His arms wrapped firmly around mine
Why have I felt him near me?
Spending hours by my side
Why do I feel my sexuality is not a sin?
That he would never view my love as such
Why have I felt his acceptance?
When I cried to him of my pain
Why am I still his child?
No matter what they say
