So much has happened during these last few months

Friendships have broken, Enemies have formed

Even my sexuality roamed. 


I don't know what to say, really

Haters exist

Deserving my fist


Despite it all, 

I am sitting here now, 

They're welcome to bow. 


Life is too short to hide

I am who I am

feeling no shame. 


I am a leader, 

but I'm also bi

and You're welcome to give your goodbye.


Victory almost won my failure

What an irony 

It was an agony


Fortunately, it didn't succeed. 

I'm still who I was 

and one day they'll see my claws.
