So it's been about four and a half months since I came out. This poem is really personal yet I hope it still resonates with you. This is me sharing a little piece of my heart. I hope you enjoy.
Have to try
Start to cry
Constantly living my life as a lie
No longer the child who they view as perfection
Death knell to hopes of wedding invitations
Never heard of me?
Go burn in hell
Go rot in a cell
Searching for signs of dismay
Thoughts in disarray
Hardest four words to say
Mum, dad I’m gay
“Hush dear, we know. It’s okay.”
