What's the point i wearing my favorite rocket ship underpants if no one asks to see them? -Calvin and Hobbes


I can never be me
in a place where i am not

I can never be me
in a place where i don't belong

I WILL never be me
in place where i'm
just a color

I cannot live in a place
Where I'll never be accepted

Here is a place where love
is skin deep

I do not hold it against them
I do not despise them
nor do I pity them

I am disappointed in them
I want to open in their eyes

So they see not a color
but a person

I know I am just me
(though here I am not even that)

But I won't fight alone
I fight in God
