A young mans shadow darkens

As he walks into the night.

A moonlit path before him

He thinks about his life.

His parents cry and wonder

His friends just turn away.

Was life really worth living

Could he go on this way?

In search of a distant answer

He wiped away the tears.

He took the gun into his hand

No longer would he fear.

What could have been his crime

For which he paid so dear?

He was just a man, who loved a man

who hated the word, Queer!
