For Crying OUT! Loud

I've fantasized about a girl
I've dreamt about many guys
If that makes you mad
Go ahead and despise

So what? I like dudes.
So what? I like chicks.
So what if it grosses you out?
It’s my life your being totally dicks

Okay I understand you think it’s wrong
Okay it’s kinda odd
But how in hell does my love
Piss off an all loving God? 

This is not your style
Fine I can live with that,
It's not right, not natural, not LEGAL!?
Why must I be treated like haz-mat? 

So what I have kissed a girl
And to be honest yeah I liked it
Oh I've fucked a guy too
Don’t hate me or them, JUST QUIT!

Stop all the anger
Stop being so hateful
Stop the put-downs
Stop and just be grateful

Be glad someone’s not ashamed of who they are
Be happy I’m not just faking another smile
Be happy my suicides have failed
Be thrilled I'm not like you making such a rile

I'd be cool with you ignoring us
You should just be fine with knowing I’m me
Be glad that I’m OUT and I’m PROUD
For I could be the next Penicillin, Dell, or MP3. . .

I love this piece and the way you so simple put it to the world. It should be this way for all, but as we all know everybody else knows what is good for all. I too am glad your suicides have failed.

I know this comment is like 7 years old and you likely won't see this but I think it's important to know: This was my coming out. Junior year I told the world. Three years later marriage equality passed. 5 years later I started doing drag (cross dressing on stage the gay art). And 7 years later I'm happily married to another bisexual and am able to put some real activism in place for the gay and other communities with the growing platform of drag. My coming out has literally saved lives AND YOURS CAN TOO.

Poetry comes nearer to vital truth than history.

Plato (BC 427-BC 347) Greek philosopher.
