I am he, who walks among you – camouflaged as she.
I am strong in appearance yet vulnerable to my core.
Some look and yet they still fail to ever really see me.
Yes, I’m gay – but I am extraordinarily so much more.
Please, ladies don’t expect me to always be so strong,
Let my weaknesses endear me lovingly into your heart
For I have searched this world for you for so very long.
For a place where I wouldn’t always feel so pulled apart.
The world reminds me daily that to them I’m not the same
Will you be my blanket and my warm safe place to be?
Hold me to your bosom and gently speak my name
Please, let me know that with you I can always be just me.
My world has been a battle from which I’ve been so bruised
My spirit may have been scarred but is has not been broken.
The world has chewed me up and left me feeling abused,
Woman, look into my soul and see all that’s left unspoken
Remind me that in your arms I have truly found my place
Accept me for all my uniqueness which you can truly see
You bring to my world an element of beauty, style and grace
You’ve given me just what I need to truly just be me.
