Maybe...






Maybe...

Maybe someone listened
when we shouted out in rage,
maybe someone understood
the words upon the page.
Maybe someone listened
when the world found its voice,
maybe now their leaders know
their people have a choice.
Maybe fear and loathing
will no longer rule the day…
maybe now their citizens
will be proud to say they’re gay.

Maybe...
