Rainbow Dream


Rainbow Dream

by: J.P. Leddy

We have no pulpit to raise our voices clear…

For it is from pulpits that venom is spewed on us…

In the name of God,  our love is condemned to fiery hell…

From those who use Jesus as a sword to shed our blood…


We will not let them keep us down in their dungeons of hate…

Our  dream breaks up chains , crosses all color and gender…

It is a dream of equality of love , the Rainbow Dream…

Where same sex lips can touch in love without bigotry unleashing…


Where we will not be beaten for being born who we are …

Where we will not be taunted simply because our love is gay…

Where we can marry because it is a right guaranteed…

Where the heart is worth more than who we bring to our bed…


Rise up and reach for the rainbow , straight and gay…

It is your dream  together,  where everyone can just be who they be…

Where love can flourish and hate can recede to the abyss…

Stand Hand in Hand, Mind with Mind, Heart to Heart ..


The Dream will be Real…

  1. Thanks for the nomination!
    I like your poem and your courage to write about this topic.
    I really hope the world will change, people won’t look at people based on skin color, religion or orientation …
    I like the rainbow image very much!

  2. Thanks, Jamie. I never thought about the BAR publishing it. I think the suggestion to them might come better from a reader

    You are awesome!

    JP 🙂
