Suddenly a voice echoed to my pinna
Strong like a thunderstorm but gentle like a dove
It appeared from the unknown, engulfed me as my partner
It shook my cave which had seemed so strong time and again
My shell had protected me from the hazard for as long as I had understood
This voice of a friend is threatening though not worrying
The unusual had occurred; a voice whose identity I had lost from my memory appeared to me!
Jesus, Joseph or Mary; my sins had sentenced me to their black list
Father, mother or family: they attended my funeral the other year
Trisha, Henry& Beth; they found better teammates
This voice, this voice!
Suddenly I had a voice
It closed my eyes to the dreams
Stiffened my body straight like a corpse my parents buried then
My hands nail hard but open
I had last opened my hands fashionably when church still welcomed my sinfulness; “our father, who art in Heaven”
My mind slowly slumbered; the loud voice went mute
I inhaled it in my lungs as it bounced in my chest &tickled my feet pads
My outlets opened; fresh air suffocated me
I for a moment lacked a worry or two.
I totally slimmed the weight of my burdens!
Did I just have a dream?
My muscle tone is impaired; my eyes are smiling & my ears saluting the sky.
I am filled with energy
My cup of love is full& I want to share
This is the moment!
From this moment on I love who I am
I am a proud LGBTI
I am here and
The voice was you!
