Day Thirteen This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

They sent me away
I asked myself what was wrong
A gay daughter in need
I only wanted to feel love
Day thirteen of rehab
I’m diseased
This sickness is a disgrace
I’m the dirtiest filth there is

Our sins will be forgotten

I never got the chance to sin

Once we become right again

Everything I am is wrong




Choose to stop lying

I wish I could go back




And playing this game

I don’t deserve to live

God, he could love us


Forgive all our sins

Gay can’t be forgiven

Seventeen years as a Christian

My prayers were poison




It doesn’t count when you’re a fag

I was hurting God



Heterosexuals are true Christians

I never really believed in God




It’s a shame to your family

I’m causing them pain




Abusing their love

I deserve to be alone



















We’ll
love
you forever

Forever was last week









You’re our little angel

Forever was over




My soul’s kept the film

Constantly reeling

Recalls the bible glaring

Judging from the coffee table

With its defiant stare

Quietly, but surely

Questioning my loyalty

Silence leaving me alone

frightened and alone

My only companion: the rough leather

Occupying my hands

Interrupted by the choked, piercing bullet:







How could this be?!

It’s just who I am






We raised you just right

And I’m still the same person

By the book, in fact

I drowned in shame







I just… don’t understand

What is there to get?







You need to be fixed

I was damaged goods








Why is this happening to us?

Why are they doing this to me?






Today you can change

I’ve heard this before




Today you can be straight

I wasn’t yesterday




Love yourself enough to stop lying

I hate myself more than before




You can be loved again

I am alone and isolated




You can go home

I will be loved when I lie




We only want to help you
Destroy this film

Forget this scene

Erase this movie

I only want to die
