The Words of Another

Thu, 07/12/2018 - 15:20 -- Rod

Poetry changed my life,

Poetry set me free and let me fly,

Poetry taught me to love myself and never cry,

Poetry has forever changed my life.

 

Without poetry I would be caged,

Without poetry I would live an opposite life,

Without poetry I would be living in a lie,

Without poetry I’d be in a different parade.

 

 

Just like Maya Angelou, I rose,

I was not broken by the words of hate,

I will not let people call me straight,

Just like Maya Angelou, I rose.

 

Thanks to poetry I found the courage to come out,

Break the walls of what I once called real life,

Now calling myself gay, I can be free,

Poetry helped me come out without a doubt.

This poem is about: 
Me
