My coming out poem, Mom I'm a lesbian!

by Naomi   Jul 12, 2007

I'm still the same person,
Inside and out.
I'm still your daughter Mom,
I'm just coming out.

I've felt this way for a long time,
And I imprisoned myself,
By telling all these lies.
So please, forgive me of my innocent crime.
It's been too long,
And no longer can I hide these lies.

I won't be the perfect daughter,
That you want me to be.
I won't be involved with a man,
But a women, you'll see next to me.

If I disappoint you Mom,
Then I must be the worse person in the world.
To let my mother down kills me,
Just because I prefer a girl.

I'm sorry Mom,
If you don't approve.
But this is who I am,
And thats where I'll stand!

* I came out a year ago...and its been ok with me and my mom so far.* I hope this helps...
