Lost in Translation
A Christian boy in love with another... is it really against the rules? I first realized three years ago, as I was sitting in my chemistry class, that the boy next to me was c u t e as it says, "man shall not lay with man", and yet the laws of my heart said otherwise. But the books ... dis agree... I prayed- -so hard- -looking for answers A m I a contradiction? an abomination? a disgrace? S l o w l y s l o w l y I found them, strung between mouths and hearts and l i f t i n g u p like birds in flight. Singing the songs we ignored An all loving God? that hates how His child was made?Our answer: No. An all loving God with a miscommunication A holy war of hearts and minds, ancient words, modern dreams; Translations, translations, versions, versions; Each one disagrees with each other And yet He always says, to "love your neighbor as yourself" Something got lost in translation. I am at peace now with God given answers Love is not sin, if I love it comes from a heart which my God has made.If I am at peace love is the answer, for the Poor the Widowed the Disabled the Marginalized And the Queer.

I'm still having difficulty with the formatting but I tried to follow the FAQ advice.
I have a poem I wrote already that I based this on, posted on my Instagram (@jacgrad).
