A poem


MY FATHER ASKED IF I AM GAY
I ASKED DOES IT MATTER?
HE SAID NO NOT REALLY
I SAID YES.
HE SAID GET OUT OF MY LIFE!
…I GUESS IT MATTERED.

MY BOSS ASKED IF I AM GAY
I ASKED DOES IT MATTER?
HE SAID NO NOT REALLY
I TOLD HIM YES.
HE SAID YOU’RE FIRED, FAGGOT!
…I GUESS IT MATTERED.

MY FRIEND ASKED IF I AM GAY
I SAID DOES IT MATTER?
HE SAID NOT REALLY
I TOLD HIM YES.
HE SAID DON’T CALL ME YOUR FRIEND!
…I GUESS IT MATTERED.

MY LOVER ASKED DO YOU LOVE ME?
I ASKED DOES IT MATTER?
HE SAID YES
I TOLD HIM I LOVE YOU
HE SAID LET ME HOLD YOU IN MY ARMS!!!
FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE SOMETHING MATTERS!!!

MY GOD ASKED ME DO YOU LOVE YOURSELF?
I SAID DOES IT MATTER?
HE SAID YES.
I SAID HOW CAN I LOVE MYSELF? I AM GAY!
HE SAID THAT IS WHAT I MADE YOU…!
…NOTHING AGAIN WILL EVER MATTER
