A Letter To My Father
This is your little girl.
I may be grown but I am still your little girl.
I love you and I look up to you.
I wanted to find a man just like you.
There is something I want to tell you.
Wanted to tell you for years.
Scared you would look at me differently.
It is hard to get me in dresses.
Even harder to get me to wear make up.
Remember the time when I was little.
Too young to know better.
I wanted to be like you.
We were outside.
You were cutting the grass.
You got hot so you took your shirt off.
I did too.
Mom yelled at me to put my shirt back on.
I did not understand.
I do now and I still think it was funny.
We are close.
We listen to some of the same music.
We watch some of the same shows.
We like the same comedians.
You did not like the guy I feel in love with.
I did not know then why you never tried to like him.
I thought you thought he was white trash.
I know I am your little girl and that is reason enough.
No guy will ever be good enough for me.
I still do not understa
Black Lady and Mistress 9She was humming happily to herself as she skipped into the bathroom. It had been such a perfect day, filled with all her favorite things. Now she just had to get ready for bed and look forward to another perfect day.
She ran the water in the sink, wetting her toothbrush before she looked in the mirror. Why hadn't someone mentioned she had some sort of dirt on her forehead? She put the toothbrush down and grabbed her washcloth. She shoved it under the water for a moment and then scrubbed at the mark. The more she rubbed it, the darker and larger it got, until she could see it was a black star.
"No!" she gasped, dropping the cloth in the sink.
"Did you really think I was gone?" Her reflection said with an evil smile. "I am a part of you"
"No!" Hotaru said shaking her head and backing away from the mirror. "You're dead. I I destroyed you!"
"Oh really?" Hotaru's reflection said, pulling itself out of the mirror. As her reflection pulled itself from the mirror its appearance changed i
Hey girl across the room...Hey girl in the room,
Far away you sit and speak,
A single friend on your table,
Coffee's in hand,
Hey girl across the room,
I know you saw me in that grove,
Dancing through the tables,
Smile on your face,
Hey I know you don't know me,
I seem a little high strung,
But baby ITS CAUSE I SAW YOU TOO,
Hell I noticed you,
When you were jumping hitting the balls with your racket,
Damn girl you shine,
Blonde hair falling in the air,
Your sharp eyes sparkling,
Slow motion fall,
Damnit you got me star struck,
In my head,
Bobbing to the beat of the electro-feat,
It's time to meet the one you seek,
I know it's not me but I can shed,
My protective threads?
Girl I don't know your name,
But I can't see why I'd need it,
You'll always be the girl, who took me by surprise,
The one who makes me go mad inside,
Not bad mad,
Damnit girl turn off the lights,
You're blinding me,
I need my eyes to see,
I need my eyes to look,
"With liberty and justice for all." This is a common phrase that every American knows and has said. It speaks of rights that every human being deserves, including gay people. Gay people deserve the same rights as everybody else.
Thirty-two out of the fifty United States have some type of ban on same-sex marriages. Gay marriage is one of the most talked about issues in society today and is facing much controversy. According to Infoplease.com, there are only five states in the United States that issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. That is shocking when you realize that many other countries allow gay marriage, including Canada and South Africa. Now some places in the world offer civil unions instead of marriages to gay couples, but civil unions don't offer joint social security or federal tax breaks that come with a marriage. Some people say that gay marriages would threaten the institute of marriage, which in-and-of itself is an oxymoron. How anyone thinks that letting people ge
