Words Can Hurt by MadamMichi Words Can Hurt by MadamMichi
UPDATE: 11/23/2014 I turned off comments because this deviation is so old that it can be hard to respond to comments. I am doing just fine and thank you for all your lovely support. If you are struggling as an LGBT person, stick through it, it gets better I promise. 

So for all those trying to cheer me up :) thank you so much. This deviation is from 2011 and I am doing quiet well now (yes I have heard worse things since I made this but I'v grown much thicker skin) to anyone else struggling hang in there!!! there are wonderful and accepting people out there I promise!

I couldn't put this in lit. but that is it's intended category :shifty:

Time: 1 Hour 37 Mintues
Layers : 26

A poem I wrote at 1:37 AM on the note App on my Ipod Touch. Then until 2:30 AM I thought up the idea for the picture and I remembered all those quotes you see in the background. Also during that time I watched this video and it made me ball my eyes out for like no reason-->… …no I don’t cry at all ‘it Gets Better Videos” …maybe it’s because I was so sleep deprived.

Quotes Cited
The Good
"You are perfect just the way you are" ~In a It Gets Better Video

"It gets better and it can get great"~Dave Savage
"You're still my best friend!" ~djchungy
"You didn’t do anything wrong” ~President Obama
"Your differences are a source of pride and a source of strength"~President Obama

The Not So Good
"Filthy Unnatural Perverts"~ A comment on news article about gay marriage
"They should all be lined up and shot" ~A kid at my church
"The world has brainwashed them"~ I have heard this twice once my a woman in my Sunday school class and once by my 8th grade teacher.

I love it! Everyone in the world needs to see this. I want to see a true smile on your perfect cute face. Always listen to the kind people. The people who believe in equality. And I'm one of them. Never listen to the ones who hurt you. I want to be your kind shield, I want to be your protector from the haters. They can have they're 'opinion', but never, ever, forget that you are truly beautiful, just because you are you. And I'm sure that many other people agree with me. Please, let us be your supporting shields.

I understand ow you feel. They make gay jokes and even my friends make them. I told them to stop because they aren't funny, they hurt. I with I could relate to you with it but I can't right now. I fine with gays and I accaullly find it cool. i hope you feel okand get the courage to tell our friends If I did know you in rela life then i would deffinalty want to be friends with yo. you seem like a great person and I wouldn't judge you on what you were.
Feel better soon
