Pride

By Allie

Tears dried upon my cheek, pain from you seeping from cuts so deep.

Hang over from the fatal night before. “Faggot” signs lay aside my door.

In this world I seek the truth. But bashed I am for my chosen route.

I wonder why it has to be, that pain is the only thing I receive.

Sing of life sing of death. Sing of pain and sing of regret.

Why can’t I ever sing of love and good things happening?

Hope is dying inside of me. You only speak against my equality.

And I wont let you see me hurt from you. I’ll make it like searching for stars at noon.

Sing of life sing of death. Sing of pain and sing of regret.

Why can’t I ever sing of love and good things happening?

Soon this world of hate will turn. And I hope those of closed minds will learn.

Just because I’m proud of my homosexuality, doesn’t mean you should detest and hate me.

I’m finally figuring this unfair life out, and the reason you shame me for coming out.

Does it make you feel great to put me down? Well, what goes around comes around.

Here I go as I sing my song… My love, no more, will I let you say is wrong.

You can kiss my silence forever goodbye, I am who I am, you can’t kill my pride.
