Illustration by Ale Mercado for Gay

I’m Gay, get over it,
Your words won’t hurt me no longer.
You can’t change the way I am,
I’m just me!
If you don’t like me, tough,
That’s really not my problem!
I can’t help being me!
In fact, I’m proud.
I’m proud of myself –
All those months ago,
When I came out to my family and friends,
That was the hardest thing I have ever done,
But I did it, and I’m proud!
At the end of the day, neither You or I can change me,
Because I am just me!
Now, just let things be.
