William Chaplar (August 18,1961 / Trenton, New Jersey)
Bridging The Gap
I looked across the gap into an intolerant world,
And fear began to throttle my resolve.
Living like the person I was born to be became
A problem I seemed unable to solve.
But as I walked across the bridge connecting my two worlds,
I felt less like a sacrificial lamb.
That's when I realized that I was gonna be okay
As long as I know who and what I am.
