Harvey Milk

Standing for who you are can be terrifying at times
Especially when who you are may be considered a crime
Harvey Milk wanted the American Dream
But with all of the criticism it wasn't as close as it seemed
He got caught up in the hippie era, peace and love
He loved politics so he had to stop looking like a bum
He cut his hair and for supervisor he decided to run

By leading marches with gay activists by day and by night
He knew he had to fight for what was right
Sexuality doesn't make you different 
And everybody just needs to learn how to cope with it
He did finally get put into power
The tragic end got Harvey face to face with a gun
But as for LGBT it has only begun
