If I told you the truth,
The secret hidden within,
The one that has tortued many a youth,
And to many is thought of as a sin.
If I came out to you,
Would you see me making a choice,
Or coming down with a disease like the flu?
Or am I just finding my voice?
Coming out to a world so blind,
And shaking the status quo,
Will you truly care or mind?
Or will this turn friend into foe?
At this time, and this day,
It’s time to tell what I have to say.
