🏳️‍🌈Pride Poetry🏳️‍🌈

Hello!

Ran out of reading material? Then look no further! Here’s a couple of links to lists of poetry put together to celebrate pride month. I’ve not read every one on the lists myself yet but I hope it’s a good start; these two sites are my go-to for poetry usually, so, I expect good things. Enjoy x

Love is Love

Standard

The stars did not go out tonight.

No inky canopy lost its sparkle, nor did the light grow dim.

No flames were extinguished tonight.

Embers still caress wicks and flare a rainbow of colours in their kiss.

Hope did not fail tonight.

Dreams and wishes still whisper their wisdom and are kept, nurtured, alive within.

Love did not fade tonight.

No hatred, no torment, no blistering evil will ever grow strong enough to stop this.

Because love is love, and we are love,

And we are stronger with it than without,

And to those who wish to destroy love,

Well, let there never be any doubt:

Love will win, every time. Even for those we have never met.

Because love is love, and love will shine. We will not forget.
