To Feel The Way I Feel


Take a second to breathe, to listen.

To hear the laughing and the whispering.

I get it, we all do, it's old news.

I'm gay, yes it's true.

Yet you don't understand, acting rude and all whack.

When you're saying mean things as a matter-of-fact.

If you had day in my life you'd see,

All the sh*t and the pain that gets put on me.

Just once I'd like to see everyone love and act peacefully

A place where someone could be themself

Without worrying about popularity

I know not everyone will see eye-to-eye

But would it kill you to just f*cking try?

Someday I know that love could be shared with everyone

When I know MY son could love another son
