Thoughts of suicide

I can understand
How you could feel that way
Seeing people protesting who you
Preachers calling you
Your Friends make jokes
And call the tomboys dykes
And all this time you’re dying inside
You’ve heard your own mother
Say that just ain’t right
I can understand the reasons
You can’t stand it anymore
It seems the whole world
Hates you for something you can’t control
I can understand
How you could feel that way
But don’t lose hope
There’s pride to be had
People who will help
Tell you you’re not alone
There are many who share the feelings you try to hide
And we have taken up the fight
So that not all you see is people hating
But also the other side
Knowledge that you’re not the only one
That you are not a sinner
That you are not wrong
By Pam Hartley
