Feel for Orlando. #13

June 13, 2016

Yesterday.

 

I did not feel

could not feel

 

Denied to feel.

 

a denial of feels

that’s embedded in this world’s climate 

 

for gay tolerance.

 

I know a life

a way of living 

 

where others need to

 

tolerate

 

my existence.

 

Because I’m a boy

who likes boys. 

 

And I'm taught to tolerate

how much you like your guns. 

 

As a child 

I learned

liking boys

was not accepted.

 

and having feels

was not okay.

 

because 

my genitals 

are male.

 

and others have chosen

what that means 

for my lyfe’s trajectory.  

 

This

is how we were programed. 

 

49 died yesterday

and I could not feel.

 

49 died yesterday.

 

and today

I get to be here. 

 

and today

I get to feel.

 

We get to feel.

 

and then- 

it’s too much.

and these words-

are not enough.

 

 

 

Our

 

Souls

 

Ache. 

 

 

 

but we must keep feeling 

 

all the feels. 

 

Feel for

 

Our Brethren

Our Sisterhood

Our Allies

 

Our Tribe. 

 

Feel for Orlando.
