Why wouldI choose to be gay,
to be laughed at and mocked all day?
Why would I wantto feel like I have to hide,
so that I won't get attacked from behind?
Whywould I want to risk so much,
for people to be disgusted by my touch?
Whywould I want teachers and students
insulting me all day long,
not thinkingwhat they're doing may be wrong?
Why would I want to live my life in aconstant fight,
for things most people get outright?
Why would I want torisk losing the people I care about,
to have them tell me how much I disgustthem as they
push me out?
Why would a human choose this life,
whenthe world wants to beat me down because I want a wife?
So, yeah, I chose tobe gay
I wanted to push my mom away
So she could tell me that I disgusther
and my stepdad make fun of me by calling me sir
So, yeah, I chose to begay
I wanted to be called names all day
So ignorant kids could make my daysfeel like hell
and harass me until I finally fell
So, yeah, I chose to begay
I wanted my dad to tell me I could no longer stay
So he could disown mefor the second time
and treat the way I was born to love like a crime
So,yeah, I chose to be gay
I wanted to be scared for my life each
and everyday
So people who can't understand use violence against me
And tell me theway they think I should be
No, I did not choose to be gay
I did not want tobe treated in a horrible way
All I want it to be completely free
to be whoI was born to be
