Favorite Quote:
Courage is not the absence of fear, rather yet the will to overcome it. - anonymous



Out of the closet

out in the day

out for the people

that are merry and gay.


Out in the chains

that still hold me down

not out for the people

that will surely frown


Out for myself

out for her too

not out for the people

that want something new


Out to be loved

not out to be hated

not out for the people

that say I've been baited.


Out in the sunlight

out not alone

out so I can be

at peace to the bone.
