Stirrings

It’s stirrings… feelings and immediately you know
That something makes you different, and you pray it can’t show
& being different means you have something to hide
Hence the beginning a life of lies
Maybe you could sense it
For us it was the same, the day we stepped back
and realized just how we were different that day

& First hand, I can tell you, there is no lonelier time
Than when you realize you may be outcasted
Even brutalized in this life!
Punished and Questioned by the ones you love and adore
Minimized to a sinner, or a dyke, or a whore!
& This is the road we get to look forward to!
These are the things young gay teens fear

So, some of us shy away from family and friends
Some of us die on the inside
Wishing it all would just end!
Some find the strength & courage
To not only live but thrive
& Out of fear and loneliness
Some of us even take our own lives

So, will you listen to my story?
Because I am living proof
This is a fight for human rights
& you should be angry too!
Cause I’m not sure if you heard about it or if you even knew
Our country's foundation says
Life, love and happiness are for us ALL to pursue.

GUILTY

I am guilty.
Guilty!
Yet human at best
& Now, I sit at the mercy
Of your forgiveness


Can it be done?
Can we go on?
Can we stay strong?
Past the accusations of right 
..... & of wrong?


Now only distant lovers
With broken dreams
Trapped in a melodrama
Where things are never as they seem
& this time I'm to blame


This time the guilt is my shame
So I lay in the ruins 
Looking over the mess
Holding my breath knowing
I'll die waiting for your forgiveness


But don't dare judge me
As I stand here with my mistakes
Naked to you, tears of shame on my face
I'm here in humility baring the guilt that's inside 
Hoping to be absolved not cower behind my pride.

Questions

Now I know what you think
When you look into her eyes
You desiring her
Means you've been feeding me lies

She challenges you
& your concept of us
Along with the Love
Now I question the trust

The time and the faith
I have put into you
Now knowing the truth
I question what you do

But I saw this coming
Its no surprise to me
As you decide what you want
And with whom to be

So here's to the question
I wouldn't let you ask
Because I knew you loved me
But were not through with your past

So do what you must
Yet don't string me along
Or hold me tight and tell me
You haven't wanted her all along
