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,
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.
