Cage Of Fear

By Gabisie Mathembu

The homosexuality that caged me and turned me into a slave,

Imprisoned me with words that cast a shadow over who I truly am.

This homosexuality kept me away,

Pain and sorrow wounded best part of me.

I want to have courage to break these chains of that denied me,

I want to scream louder than loud because yes I am different,

I want to scream,

FREE.

I want to come out meet the sun,

I want society to see me as a human being who deserves life.

I want to escape from shame because I exist,

Yes I exist.

I am not less human.
