That was the morning I made the decision,
It was time I started telling people about my sexual preference.
In my head, I was trying to figure out how no one knows,
I guess my mannerisms don’t show who I really am.
The world gets engulfed in men with women tendencies,
That’s how they’re personified as gay these days.
I live with my mom, my dad is long gone from my life,
Knowing that if I told my dad, he would disown me from the family.
This is the biggest risk I’m taking in my young life,
I can’t hide this anymore as it is taking a toll on my mind.
I need to get it off of my chest so I can be relieved of it,
I’m too worried about the backlash and consequences.
The whole day at school, I was thinking about telling my mother,
Scared of her reaction and how she would respond to me telling her.
That night, I’m at home and I hear my mother come in and settle in,
Then we sat down in the living room and I came out and told her that I’m gay.
To my surprise and shock, she said to me that she already knows,
I guess it’s a mother’s intuition that I forgot to take into account.
She told me that I’ve never brought any girls home to meet her,
Michelle is the only girl and she knows we are best friends.
She also said she hasn’t told any family members and she won’t,
I’d have to give her permission to tell our family members.
She said she understands that our culture hates gay people,
But she doesn’t care and that she loves me no matter what.
After hearing all of those things from the woman of my life,
I felt that I can tackle on the rest of the people that are in my life.
