I Am Not

Choked by the misconception of what is right
A prude standard clarified and shoved down our throats
Some believe whole heartedly
While others revolt the thought
Well I am a patriot
I do not believe what you do
I never will
I am not ashamed
I will not cover my face when you confront me
But stand in your way
Rejecting every traditionalist idea you drip
Counterattacking your view of what’s natural
I am allowed to have my own opinion
I am allowed to turn away from you
I will not contort myself to your vision of a lady
I never will
I am not ashamed
