i believe in love

i believe in love because love believes in me

there is not any privilege to what the heart gives & takes

although half of the world cannot seem to see

that equality for all means for both gay & straight


in 1963 a black man had a social dream

holding faith in america to see what was right

& while walking through montgomery i thought of doctor king

& how sexuality might be more like black and white


"for god so loved the world"  we hear from week to week

then dogma and doctrine that justifies the hate

but understand when jesus christ died for you and me

he invited all people in the world to heaven's eternal gate


in recent times our hope is gone & we often feel despaired

it is harder now than ever to agree to disagree

but bigotry should not be tolerated for those who truly care

that i believe in love because love believes in me
