The Soul of a Gay Man

by Phronesus Disegno

Age Group: Adult



I am God, I am Goddess too
I am both and neither at the same time
I choose when to be God
I choose when to be Goddess
For they are both in me
And around me

Yet I can't tell them apart
The feminine hunter who gathers too
Protector of children with my life
The masculine gatherer who hunts too
Mediator of disparate adults
It's all the same to me

Women love my ability to nurture
Fearful admiration of my impenetrable boundaries
Nervous respect when I teach them to be strong
But I know one can be strong and feminine
at the same time

Men admire my intergity and self-control
Nervous respect when I see their hidden emotions
Fearful admiration when I teach them to let go
But I know one can be vulnerable and masculine
at the same time

To Women I am compassionate reasoning
I am strong love
I am logical sympathy
You are not in this alone
But you must earn my respect
by refusing to be a victim
by letting your beautiful integrity shine.
We are all in this together

To Men I am reasonable compassion
I am loving strength
I am sympathetic logic
You are not in this alone
But you must let me love the real you
and stop hiding your feelings
by letting your integral beauty shine.
We are all in this together

From one Gay soul to another:
We understand each other
For we are the same
because we are all different.
Women are said to be from Venus
Men are said to be from Mars
But we're from somewhere in between where we can see both
Perhaps it's Earth, perhaps it's not
Sometimes made to feel as if we don't belong here,
but we know we do, because
We are beautiful souls
despite all messages to the contrary.
We understand love and pain more intimately than the average person.
We have a very special and powerful Magick unique only to us.
We hold the key to love and understanding having earned it from hate and intolerance.
We give this world a certain beauty like no one else can.
No one can take that from us,
But we are still willing to share it,
even with those who do not understand.

I am not quite masculine or feminine...
Maybe a little more masculine if I had to choose
I like it that way. GRRR!!! Hear me roar!
Meow, pet me behind the ears! Puuurrrrr...

But, what exactly does it all mean, anyway?
Men and Women both need respect.
Men and Women both need hugs.
I see no distinction
For there is none
When you are God and Goddess
At the same time.
