Be the change you want to be. ghandi

It's people like you,
Who make people like us feel scared.
Why do you do this to us?
Beat us up,
Hit us,
Spit at us,
Call us names.
Ya'll treat us like we're aliens
We're just like you
Except we just choose a different life style
It's people like you
Who make people like us want to kill ourselves?
Dang I must suck,
I hate myself,
I want to change life styles.
See its things like that
That makes us want to hide
You happy now
You got what ya'll wanted
Yeah, right
Not on my watch
We like who we are
We won't change for no one
So try to change us
You won't no where
We really like this life style
Except we didn't choose it
Our born ways did
So don't ever say
Change, Change, Change
Cause we can't
It's just who we are
If you don't like it
Then to bad
It's people like you
Who make people like us feel ashamed of who we are?
Why is that
Exactly you can't really answer that
It's people like you
Who make people like us irritated to hear homophobic comments?
Like 'he's a fag'
Or 'go back in the closet'
It's things like that
That make us feel left out and unwanted
And most hated to be who we really are
