The room was light and warm

His eyes showed hope

Lending a secure feeling

which I really needed

I wanted to tell him everything
The therapist

the doctor you go to when you need a social makeover
yep me a faceless teen
needing help from a shrink

He bared a big white smile

He asked me questions

I didn’t think I knew the answers too

He stood up and searched me

analyzing my very self

Who am I

I asked

That’s up too you

said the magician

He opened the door to the horrors outside

Its time to go he said

Time to go
I didn’t want to leave
his knowledge
was like a safety blanket

I could tell him anything
and he’d tell me what it meant

His knowledge will soften the blow
when the time comes
to tell people
I am gay and proud

But until then
I will continue to look for myself

The author's comments:
"I'm putting together this story of a boy named Mason Gonzalez, who seems to have fallen into a rut when he starts to feel out of place in his body he doesn't feel like mason but an intruder. These poems show how he progressed throughout the cycle of finding out his sexuality the hard way."
