Discrimination is wrong.
My father and mother are fine with it as long as I never talk about it. My friends don’t mind at all as long as I never bring it around them. My co-workers pretend I’m not by never engaging me in simple conversation.
As long as they get the watered down version of me they’re happy. As long as they don’t have to think about who I love they accept me. As long as I don’t flaunt my other side everything is peaceful.
A part of me is dying, fading away to nothing. Hiding who I am and who I love for the benefit of others. Being only half of my true self.
So I love you mom and dad, I need you my friends, I respect you my co-workers.
Let me introduce you to me. I love, need and respect myself also. This is my life, and it is my job to take care of me. I refuse to let half of myself drown while I’m around you anymore. Because even though my one half is terrific…my whole being is phenomenal. Don’t worry, I’ll show you the way.
It’s time to throw a pebble in the pond.
