Don’t Ever Back Down From Hate

(Trigger warning: In this poem I speak about a real incident of homophobia that happened to me.)

Today I faced hate,

Today I laughed hate away,

Today I felt a punch to the literary heart,

Today I deflected them away,

Today I stood up,

Today I showed another what a fairyboy can do,

Today I scared away a homophobe,

Today I rocked the world.
