The highest misconception is fluorescent colors are all that surrounds me daily
I carry my “gayness” around like it’s a trophy
Though that is far from it.
Because hearing my parents tell me to at least try to enjoy the other genders genitalia, happens more often than not.
Going to school is like going through hell and back
Kids tell me I am going to hell
I need to repent
What is wrong with me?
Nothing, I say
Tears rolling down my face.
I am me, I am just like you
Though I do not desire what you do.
I will hold her hand proudly
I will fill her all of the things she could possibly need
& it is not just physical either.
I will cover her in attention
& cascade my protection.
Though you won’t see it the way I do
That is all you will see
You are colorblind to love
Love in not meant to be compressed.
I will keep my pride
