Justify

Justify your hate.

Justify your bigotry.

Justify your killing spree.

Justify the loss of lives

of someone’s brother, sister,

daughter, or son

by a man with a gun

filled with hate and fear.

Justify your gun.

Justify your hate.

 

 

You can’t.

 

I don’t have to justify dancing.

I don’t have to justify love.

I don’t have to justify the way I dress.

I don’t have to justify love.

I don’t have to justify being gay.

I don’t have to justify love.

I shouldn’t have to justify love.

 

Why would I have to justify love?

 

This is not a poem.

This is not a request.

This is a stand.

I stand for love.
