To be a poet, you have to go through pain
Its like the saying about getting to the rainbow by goin through the rain
As a kid you told me I could be anything I wanted to be
Well, Anything doesnt include being gay apparently.
It's like saying I can be free and then putting me in chains.
Or telling me not to cut and then slitting my veins
Then putting salt in the wounds burning like acid rain
Feeling unwanted and blamed, driving me insane
Im still the girl you've always known
Nothings changed, in fact ive grown
Now youre forcing me on this path alone
Guess I'll learn to hold my own
If you wont guide me
I ask you to stand beside me
Help me stay me
So i dont become the freak that you see
If you cant love me based on my sexuality
Then you can never love the real me
