They are strangers to the world,
They are strangers to their own people,
They are strangers to their families,
They are strangers to themselves.
They suffer the rejection of all,
They suffer the rejection of self,
They suffer the rejection of religion,
They suffer the rejection of society.
They just want to be accepted as human
And not rejected as bestialities,
They just want to be allowed to express themselves
And then decide their destiny.
They are victims in the midst of a war,
A war involving all types of things and all types of people.
They are the only ones outside this battle,
A battle that people say that belong to them.
They just want a time to discover their own identity,
They just want a time to deal with all these will, desires and lascivious inclination.
They just want a time to understand their bodies, their minds and their hearts.
They just want a time to make their decision and choose their own way.
We don’t need to agree with them to love them,
We don’t need to use violence, hatred and despise them to let them know we have another thinking.
We don’t need to walk away from them, they are normal, they are people like all of us trying to find their own way in a chaotic world.
We don’t need to force them to accept what we think is best for them.
We just need to be kind,
We just need to be Christlike,
We just need to recognize our own weakness,
We just need to love.
