2013 Dec. 19: “The Life of a Lesbian”

Who said being lesbian is not normal?
Who said homosexuality is a disease?
Who said I am a mistake?
Why can’t people accept my ‘lifestyle’
My sexual preference doesn’t change the fact that I’m human.

Who gave people the right to abuse us, or rather murder us?
Why can’t we be accepted?
God said we are all HIS children, yet we are treated like sinners…

I always wonder where did we go wrong…
I always wonder when will it all end…
I always wonder when will our fights be recognised.

Nembeza ushonephi???
Murdering us won’t make us vanish,we are what we are…

We are proud lesbians…

    Refiloe Sunshine (Lindi) Mathe- Merry Christmas from New Zealand although I am a lesbian writer in Canada. I am escaping the snow with my married partner, Trish. My site is dedicated to supporting lesbians all over the world so that it can become their second home.
