Why can’t I be strong?
Sure I act strong, on the outside
But I’m really not
Inside, I am as weak as a baby’s first day out of the womb.

They say words can’t hurt you
So why do they hurt me?
Every time I’m called Gay, F*****, or D***…
I stand strong; but I’m really dieing and crying
Every time I get dirty looks
I act like I brush it off; but it always gets to me and binds me up like I’m in chains.
Why can’t I break out of these chains?
Why do I always let it get to me?
