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.
