Coming Out


I'm starting to care less now
Why be ashamed?
If I can't help who I am
Then why bother hiding?
Am I afraid of what people will say?
Will my parents send me away?
Is that what I fear?
Or is it the way society's built?
Maybe, oh I don't know.
I fully don't get why
I feel the need to hide away
A years worth of memories.
The days will go
Maybe I'll tell, who knows?
I feel the days escaping
When I could go out and not care
Who hates me.
I was born this way
So why should I care?
I've known since I was young
I didn't choose this.
Insecurity? I don't know...
I just feel my day coming
When I won't give a crap
And for once, be myself.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
