You are a tin foil fool
wrapped in your shiny superiority,
thinking you know all the answers.
Judgment oozes from your pores.
The smile on your face not a smile,
there is no kindness or humor in it.
Don’t tell me who I am to love.
I didn’t ask for your permission.
My heart is my own.
Condemn me with your words,
chain your temple doors,
place a sign “Do not enter.”
I live by one simple rule,
treat others as you
wish to be treated.
I can not look at people
with a set of rule books,
a checklist of acceptance.
Love is a gift given to me
with only one condition,
I am to pass it on.
