Hide Away - Poem by Zach Stahle

We make our way back to class
for once I'm included in the conversations
I felt like I belonged
I knew the truth.
this sense of confidence was replaced instantaneously
Accusations of impurities and my longing resonate in my mind.
I resist the attack half-heartedly
Honestly, why should I bother defending myself?
I know it's true...
but I'm ashamed of what's inside...
so I counteract the insult to humor him...

    Mirror on the wall who do you see
    The boy pink,
    Insecure why when your good
    Purity sees no sex no hate no race
    In which my heart goes to you
    Be at peace
    And others will too

    Write more to me, so my heart will be filled.

    That kinda caught me, your raw emotion there.
    But seriously, you're always worth defending.
