My heart has ben bound, tangled in thorns.
hands tightly strapped with shackles,
tender wrist from the metal rubbing on my skin,
Bruised knees and an aching body.
I slowly trapped myself in this place, a place only bound by my feelings.
My heart beat slowed, with each expansion I felt pain.
I tried so long to hide my feelings,to be perfect, to satisfy others before myself. I screamed for help, to only here echos breach the ceiling.
Tears ran down my face as if they were crystals, I watched each one roll off my cheeks as they hit the ground and shattered.
I was lost, bound in a place because of my own feelings and imperfections. I was shouting for help,wrapped in thorns,chained with shackles, I was simply hiding from myself.
Love feels all to familiar, Like a familiar face.
maybe I have seen him in my dreams. No, it was probably the way he walked, Carefully placing one foot in front of the other, or maybe it was the way he would speak, A little feminine but not to masculine.
His smile maybe? The corner of his lips perfectly arched, lips that are not to small but could be hard to grasp.
I swear I seen this face! A face that is perfectly sketched in my head. Maybe its deja vu, a moment I once lived but is blurred with stained images, but this face is a familiar face that I cant seem to recognize, Or maybe its just me staring in your eyes seeking your love. Yes that face, that’s placed on the opposite side of the mirror.
A lot of people are calling Jonah Mowry a lie and a fake, but dos that really matter considering that the message was incredibly clear. This 14 year old boy opened up his life to millions of strangers with something very personal, not knowing if it would in fact change the way people pictured him or if it would bring hope or comfort to anyone else, but considering all of the wonderful video reply’s and comments that’s just what it did.
Jonah has touched so many people not only for being gay, but for someone who has also ben bullied. People are bullied everyday for being gay, over weight, Choice in religion, bad hygiene,bad acne, for being poor, SHOOT! you can change your hairstyle for the next day of school and be made in front of. Some bullies are aware and some are not, but it takes people like Jonah to share their story. Jonah decided to do it on a deck of small index cards and still manged to get his message across, it just shows it dos not take much talking or written words to make a impact on someones life.
I wish I could say this changed everyone’s opinion on homosexuality and bullying but it hasn’t and if you take a look at the recent comments (not to mention the homophobic reply’s) on the situation you will see the same. all though some people say he was lieing or faking, but come on now put your self in his shoes when he posted his video, try to feel what he was feeling. Constantly criticized Hurt,Lost,Scared,Alone,not being accepted and hiding a big secret from his loved ones, Then seeing all the great responses and support he has got from super stars to TOTAL strangers! Come on now let’s be real, who wouldn’t be happy? This boy has stood up to the world and said “I Aint going nowhere” So you think he is going to let some Youtubers discourage him and put him in a spot he was once at? No. He deserves to be happy I just wish others could understand that.
I just wanted to say THANK YOU Jonah I am one of many you have made a strong impact on, you have started a wonderful trend, due to your video.
