finally admitting to myself who I really am...

I’m a person just like any other,
And we all were born from one father and one mother.
It’s just that we have our quirks here and there,
Mine just seemed to be as costly as a stranded man’s flare.
The thoughts of others about me,
The way I think and feel thought would be wrongly perceived.
It is apparent I was wrong to think this,
But it’s only because I wanted to be a bro not a sis.
About time I accepted who I am inside,
Only because the bottled up feelings I can no longer put aside.
It seems wrong, I know, to love a man,
But even if at first I didn’t believe it, that’s who I am.
No more sighs and sorrow,
Only a brighter tomorrow.
Knowing I have the same chance,
As a man and a woman finding love in one glance.
I’m not as different as I thought I was before,
In this age and time it’s more common, therefore,
I finally admit it to myself and of course,
Finally to my friends, who else?
So I’ll be waiting for that moment,
The glance that will bring me out of love’s lament.
And into the arms of the gender I truly love,
And since I admitted it our love will be as peaceful as a dove.

Very sweet, and I totally believe love to be love, man and women, women and women, man and man. Love is the connective tissue to humanity, some are quick to judge but I believe that’s fear of the unknown. Wishing you love ~ Nixie
