If Only I Was That Type Of Human ...

I am a gay guy, but I never asked for everyone's negative remarks.

 

I never asked to be that guy ... 

That guy who had to explain himself everytime someone made a homophobic remark.

That guy who had to be rejected by his only two best friends. 

That guy who was constantly beat up with so many insecurities 

That guy who needed not only to fight to be recognized, but as well with depression.

 

I never asked to be that boy ... 

That boy who was constantly looked at as ugly.

That boy who had to be kicked out from many places.

That boy who had to be yelled at with many death threats.

That boy who had to cut his pain away.

 

I never asked to be that teen ...

That teen who let others use his body for other's "pleasure."

That teen who cried himself to bed every day.

That teen who was too scared to speak up.

That teen who expressed his fear through art.

I never asked to be that person ...

 

All I ever asked for was to be treated as human.

That human who could grab his boyfriend's hand and say,"I LOVE YOU!" with no fear.

That human who could say, "What a fool I was to be scared."

That human who could say I beat depression

That human who could say his friends love him for, him.

 

If only I was that type of human ...
