To all the lies you told me

& all the promises you broke

To all the tears I've cried

For all the letters you wrote

To all the "forevers"

& all the "soul mates!"

For making me love you

To believing in fate

For making me trust

To making me cry

For making me that girl

To leaving me with why

For us and our love

To breaking the tie

For me wanting to live

To me wanting to die

For asking me the question

To me screaming yes

For us and our dreams

To putting us to rest

For all of our past

To a future without me

For wherever life takes you

To my future wife-to-be

For the pain and the laughs

To the loss of the love

For the smiles and the tears

To the memories and the grudge

For truly taking a chance

To truly making a choice

For "What happens next?"

To giving me a voice

For all that has happened

To the pain that remains still

For nothing will be the same 

To what's meant to be... will 

For the best that's yet to come 

I say, Cheers! 

Goodbye and thank you

Forever, My Love.

Prison of Youth.

Locked up! 
So much inside
Trying to run 
Dying to hide
& Yes, they know
For it’s on my face
Just put on a smile
Before the tears begin to race

I am looking for more  
But I cannot see
So I trip & I fall 
& I beg & I plead
I try to stand strong
Yet collapse to my knees
Praying for peace that
May never come to me

So shhhh…, Stay quiet
Don’t let them know
In the darkness you cry 
When it’s too painful to grow
'Cause it's scary to get hurt!
Or worse lose your way
Just keep your head up
Carry on with your days

Cause my dear friend
The truth is difficult to say
You’ve got to stay honest
Stay true, Stay brave.
Take it one day at a time
Let the chips fall where they may
Keep your head up
& surely you will find your way

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.
