Inner Ramblings

 I am,

Everything that could be

Of the opportunities of a lone teen

Who, at sixteen           

Couldn’t decide whether they had the right to be.

Living by themselves in their head

Imagining the least painful way of being de…

I am,

My effeminate tendencies

That I fought so hard to hide even with all my pleas.

I am

The person who you were taught to hate

With their Queer eyes and their sorry state

But after all these years

I realized that I just don’t belong.

But there’s nothing wrong with that.

I didn’t chose to be born

Though no one chose to die alone

Since I only have one life, I decided to do it right

And not go out without a fight.
