Seven Days

delroygray:

He
Has
Been
Isolated from his family.

Every morning began with the screams
Of disappointment from his mother.

Every day was spent writing suicide notes
In the margins of his real ones,
While his so-called ‘peers’
Laughed.

Every night was spent huddled under blankets,
Trying to avoid the chaos in the real world,
Created by feuding parents and
Hate from every angle.

For seven days after coming out,
This cycle continued.

For seven days, everyone he once called friends
Taunted and joked.

For seven days, he didn’t take any of them as jokes.

For seven days, all he wanted was for everyone to stop speaking.

Until one night his father ripped off the blankets,
Pointed to the window,
And said,
'Someone wants you.'

He only now noticed the glow from outside,
And as he neared his window he recognized the glow as fire,
And as he neared his window he recognized his lawn,
And as he neared his window he recognized the shapes.

Written in fire,
"God Hates Fags."

For seven days, school was a nightmare.

For seven days, school was a place
Where people screamed like his mother.

For seven days, everyone he once called friends
Only yelled slurs from a distance.

For seven days, all he wanted was for everyone to stop speaking.

You see,
He tried to keep his mind clear.
He tried to understand that they believe him to be a monster.
He tried to understand that despite what
He has been taught by the touching internet stories,
Not everyone is accepting of those that stand up for themselves.

For seven days, he didn’t go to school.

For seven days, he didn’t come home.

For seven days, his body floated in the river.

For seven days, nobody noticed.

And for seven days afterwards,
Nobody spoke.

Flowers

delroygray:

She said she would tattoo

Flowers on her arm.

She said one bloom

For every time she broke a heart,

And she said,

I could be number one.


That’s how she broke up with me.


I suppose it was supposed to be

Some type of condolence

Like a eulogy at a funeral

Spoken by the one who put

The man in the grave.


I’m hoping

That she’s regretting

Her decision to tattoo,

Because despite all of the

Nasty things I could say about her,

Like the fact that she relishes

The chance to break a heart,

She sticks to her word.


If I’m number one,

I want to meet number two.


I want to meet all of the flowers

Making up the bouquets

That must be covering her body

By now.

I want to get together in a group

And call it Survivors Anonymous.

We will identify each other

By the pedals in our hearts

And the slits on our wrists.


We will sit in a circle

And chant fucking “Kumbaya”

Until we get over her.


You see,

She is the type of person

That comes into your life

Like a hurricane

That’s only showing you

Their eye.


She is the type of person

That will poke holes in your tires

After an argument about

Spending more time at home,

But denying she ever did it.


She is the type of person

That will promise to tattoo

Flowers on her arm for every

Heart she broke,

Like it was a prize.

Wow.

Basically, she is doing the incredibly touching and heartfelt and tear-inducing piece by Javon Johnson entitled “‘Cuz He’s Black”

The poem is from the point of view of an uncle and the speech participant is a girl, so she replaces all of the “uncles” in the beginning with “aunty.” That by itself is disqualification worthy. And to cover that up, she made up a title and author to her piece, so that nobody questions it. I looked up her title, as well as bits of the piece. It doesn’t exist under that name.

They don’t actually check your sources at sections unless someone reports it.

That is how you cheat at speech.

Okay.Why is a research-based quiz only 11 questions long?Take it yourself here!Here’s a better one!
On that second one, I also scored with <10% of the population.
Should I be worried?
