I used to look down a lot
My head full of melancholic thoughts
And myself so weighed down
I could not stand up.
In fact I was falling,
deeper and deeper into a depression
I believed nothing would break such a bleak session.
Such in a panic was i that i could never belong,
I tried to take my own life.
In the time since then and now,
a time filled with medication and therapy
I have become the best me.
I have learned that even though
My homosexuality makes me different
My family cares about me no matter how different.
I have learned that no pain will last
As long as i look up
And believe that I too belong
And deserve the love I am given.
