Hi Mom, I'm really scared
now, but I have to.
At Age 13, my mother
I wasn't straight. She understand it but she had so much to say. She sat me on the couch and me straight in my face, And said "You'll burn in hell or die of AIDS." funny now but at 13 it was pain, To be almost of who you are and have it ripped away, And I'm sorry if it's too real for of you to fathom, But hate for who you love isn't exactly you'd imagine. Oh, and I it was disastrous everything that happened afterwards was just madness. Locked away for 2 years to me on the inside Because she'd rather see a of me die than me thrive. And it's tougher it's something you can't deny, And ignorance teaches us it's something you decide driven by your choices, an optical illusion, Here's to understanding it's not confusion. 'Cause,
And I can't change,
if I tried, even if I to, and I can't change, even if I tried, even if I wanted to, my love, my love, my love she keeps me warm, she keeps me warm, she me warm, she keeps me warm.
I walked the halls of my school and
seen kids hide Behind walls and footballs and things pride, I've seen innocent children suffer bruises, Suffer beneath single hand that chooses, Ignorance, fuck your religion, fuck constitutions, superstitions, There are no lakes of fire here, here on earth, And the only thing to do is, put first, And so I stand, for the boy who, by his hand, To the sound of his father "woman loves man, is Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve." And I stand for the girl with the, up her sleeve. And her, in her hand, and a, chip on her shoulder. And I stand for it all ignorance is over. This is for you. For who you are. For never letting magic, outside of your heart. Be you, be brave, And understand that do change. I you for you, I don't understand. And I you for you, Cause is who I am I you for you, I didn't understand, Now me for me, Cause is who I am
change, even if I tried, even if I wanted to, and I can't change, if I tried, even if I wanted to, my love, my love, my love she me warm, she keeps me warm, she keeps me warm, she keeps me warm. a message to the people who just don't get it. Love is love, is no difference. Not a to fix it, there is no prescription. No to visit, it is not an addiction. It's love. And it's selfless, yours, and everybody else's, So badger and abuse, the solemnly defenseless. See us as there's no equality or difference. Until we all get it, we'll be drowning in the blood Despite orientation, we all feel the love, We'll be drowning in the same Despite orientation, we all feel the love.
change, even if I tried, even if I to, and I can't change, even if I tried, even if I wanted to, my love, my love, my love she keeps me warm, she keeps me warm, she keeps me warm, she me warm.
in and labeled, Before ever able to speak who we believe we are Or who we dream we'll become, drumbeats forever changing their rhythm I am living today as I had not yet become yesterday, And tonight I'll only borrow pieces of who I am today to with me, to tomorrow. No I'm not gay. No I'm not straight. And I as hell am not bisexual. Dammit I am whoever I am I am it. Loving whoever you are when the shine, And you'll be when the sun rise. So to being able. to love. Here's to loving, because. to acceptance. Here's to fearing the fear of rejection. Here's to love and never who it is you feel you are. Here's to bullies 'cause beatings cannot forever. Here's to the moment you realize things do get better. to the parents who will get it when it's too late. Here's to chances, to new faith Here's to every single moment you've had to hide you, Here's to the single star shining bright you, asking you to guide you. Here's to who you'll be when you it all out. Here's to doubt. Here's to feeling, we all feel it the same. to the moment that things will change.
Cause we all feel love, we all
it the same. to love. to change.
