"I hate it when people see you in the supermarket and they are like 'Hey! What are you doing here?' and I'm just like 'Oh you know....hunting elephants'"


It’s my choice now
My parents’ eyes blaze
Burning the nape of my neck
Wanting me to chose Christ

One parent tells me I’m He**bound
One becomes enraged
One tries to convince me I’m wrong
One welcomes my individuality

I feel trapped
Like a bird in a cage
I can’t be myself without offending
The ones who should love me most

I can’t shake the feeling
Of utter loss and fear
As the spirits murmur of sorrow
And my mother sheds a tear

The world spins soundly still
And I wait for dawn to break
The start of a new day
Maybe peace will come my way
But until then
I’ll struggle on
And keep on hoping
Foe a brighter day

Laughter and sunshine
Will find a way
Into my heart
One of these days

Though may parents think I’m wrong
I know my heart is true
And that’s all I ask of
Myself
