Hey fellow WordPressers!!
I’m so absolutely stoked about Gay Marriage finally being made legal! Something I wasn’t so stoked about was some of my friends’ reactions to this news. In fact, I was pretty upset about it. And so, in the classic Sabrina way, I decided to write a poem about it! I hope you enjoy!
“Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her” John 8:7
A day of joy
A day of hope
But some refuse to join the fun
They shun the parades
They whine and mope
They cannot accept what we have done
We won and fought
But some, repulsed, reject the vote
Love thy neighbor is true
While equal love is not
Picking just what they want from all He wrote
It’s who we are
It’s not a choice
But some refuse to see that fact
We deserve a life
We deserve a voice
It’s finally heard and this is how they react?
This is land of the free
This is home of the brave
But we were once afraid within these walls
If they believe that we’re free
If they know that we’re brave
Then they’ll accept us and stop quoting St. Paul
That’s been the culture
That’s been the way
But women and colored were also once shamed
We hid so long
We hoped and prayed
And just like them we achieved what we aimed
They divorce and cheat
They drink their beer
But somehow think they’re above us all
They say we’re fags
They call us queer
Throwing rocks for our sins when their own appall
They’re smug and fake
They have a bad rep
They judge us hard for every little thing we do
They make me ashamed
They make me regret
Because the sad thing is, I’m one of “them” too
Glad I got that out of my system while writing something powerful in the process! I’m very disappointed about some of the facebook and instagram and twitter posts I’ve been seeing from fellow Christians. You know the Bible also says no tattoos and no cutting your hair or wearing clothes with holes in them. There was animal sacrifice and a father who thought it was okay to kill is own son! There are many things talked about in the Bible and I just don’t understand why people must fixate on that one point. I know I’m young and don’t fully understand everything about the Bible. But I do know that God loves everyone and he calls us to do the same. So that’s what I’m going to do. Love is love people!!
And for others of you who just talk and talk about the sanctity of marriage and how it fundamentally means the bonding of a man and a woman. I would like to remind you all that at some point in time, voting fundamentally meant when property holding WHITE MEN cast votes. And that definition has changed so much over the years. Now people of all genders and races can vote. And I don’t think many people would say that’s a bad thing. In the same way, the definition of marriage can and HAS changed and soon not many people will say that’s a bad thing either. I’m so happy!!
So I hope you all liked my poem and I don’t really know if I’m going to lose followers over this or whatever, but I do know that I feel strongly about this and wanted to share. Thank you.
Rainbows and Butterflies all the way,
