Being gay isn't a choice

Because why would I choose to lose my voice?

Not my voice physically, but politically

Because I found my voice when I came out

Of that godforsaken closet

Where so many people hide away

Where they choose to live in

While the rest of us out here fight the war

For love

For acceptance

For freedom
