i am not in love

i am not in love

i have dreams to marry

to have children

but i am not in love

my mother is recently divorced

but it is no longer frowned upon

i would love to marry

but somehow that is wrong

you asked me not to tell

you told them not to ask

you wanted me inside a closet but i broke free at last.

i am not ashamed

this is how god made me to be

i am gay

i am in love

you have no right to tell me

that any of this is wrong
