Day of Silence for LGBTQ Youth

from Nhojj Poetry Vol. 2 by Nhojj



Like many of you, I know first hand the effects of bullying. It is unacceptable in and out of school. I salute all you brave students, young and old, who take a stand against injustice… this poem is for you.


Yesterday April 27
Students across United States
Walked hallways 
Shining a light on an epidemic 
Silencing our
LGBTQ youth

No one should be made to feel 
Silenced... mouths closed might never speak again
GLSEN helps bring an end to
Lips sealed tight by fright, flight and fights
Tongues glued in place and
Tears of frustration streaming down one’s face 

I want to live in a world where everyone:  lesbian, trans, bi, gay, straight, queer, genderqueer, questioning, asexual, intersex, and all yet to be discovered identities and sexualities are free to express who they are...

Yes this is a rainbow vision of our society, but the rainbow only appears after the rain has fallen, the storm passed, and the sun begins to shine through the clouds again...
