I am the girl who never belongs,
I am the one crying for your entertainment,
I am the person who is hurt by your words,
I am the woman who can't get the job I desire,
I am the man no longer allowed in church,
I am the daughter shunned by her own flesh and blood,
I am the wife who had to move to get married,
I am the boy you can't invite to your sleepover,
I am the son afraid to get near others,
I am the husband not allowed to see my son because I am an unfit guardian,
I am the dying, soon to be dead because they won't treat me,
I am the homeless, rejected by my family and wanted nowhere,
I am the young adult who knows I will never get exactly what I want out of life because society hates me,
I am the struggling, who sits awake at night, trying to decide who to trust, how to live my life normally, and how to carry on without letting myself be pulled down by fools who refuse to open their eyes,
We are the victims of close-minded people, left with nothing but fear and our love, love we can not express freely for fear of being scorned.
~Dedicated to all the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning people, kids and adults alike, just trying to live a normal life.~

This came out while I was in Capstone reading the book Keeping You A Secret. It is an amazing book, and one that truly shows the beauty of love, no matter who it is between. This is my tribute.

It's so true for most of us....I can't really say that much without repeating all of the previous comments but it's a piece I can relate to. This is awesome~

I loved the entire work, but those are the lines that spoke to my heart. Going through some difficulties in life right now. So these words mean a lot to me. I want to be able to freely love the person I love. So many barriers are in our way. This just gave me a little more much needed courage. Thank you.

It makes me feel so good knowing that my work reaches out to people, and makes them feel even the slightest bit better, so I'm very grateful for your kind words. I hope you achieve what you want in life.

So, was this inspired by the book?
Or just written from the ambient emotion afterward?
