Featured poem: My Mind, My Heart – By Joyous Helena
The poem below addresses the issues in regards to self acceptance, reality, thoughts and battles of living an authentic life in relation to one’s sexuality.
My mind my heart
For the first time in months
I feel the need to be loved
My heart wants this so much
But my mind says no
Suddenly I remember you
My first that made me question myself
I liked you so much, just never realized
I thought I was outta my mind
To like someone like me
It’s a sin! my mind said
It is wrong! It said.

The way you looked at me
The way you touched me
It sent vibes down my skin
That your sweet melodious voice
When you sing…
It was so beautiful
’cause of you, I went into deep research
Trying to understand
What I’m feeling
Then sleepless nights came
Thinking of how wrong all of this was
Why fall for a good friend?
Just like me?
Wondering if you felt the same way?
Cause you didn’t look at me
Like the way you do with others
It freaked me to my bone.
I never figured if you felt the same way
Till this day
As my mind and heart were at war
At war with itself
My mind My heart
When will you agree.
