How Can Love Be Wrong?

By Mary E. Terrell

How can love be wrong?
What does it matter
If we aren't the same
Race or religion
Or if we are
The same gender
If it's really love
Why can't we
Be joined as one
To share in those
Feelings forever

But there are so many people
Who believe that
It's wrong just because
We do not fit
Their preconcieved notions
Of what being a couple
Should be

But if what we feel
Is really true love,
Can they really explain
How that love can be wrong?
