You spew bigotry from your lips
Smoothly like the air you breathe
Excuse yourself with intentions of jest
As though every word wasn’t lined with hate
Shame suppressed the truth of me
A secret I feared as much as they
Walls decorated pink, yellow and blue
On display, I express my Pride
What will it take for you’re understanding,
A Facebook post preaching acceptance?
Come out from hiding publicly?
To be proclaimed as confused, I refuse.
I won’t announce it, but I won’t hide
I’ll exist simply as I always have
Clearly shown without speaking, yet you deny
I suppose it’s your right to remain blind
