Being a homosexual
Means being multidimensional.
It starts with a struggle, confusion, an inner fight,
Ultimately reckoning with your own grit and might.
To be yourself, pure and true
And learning to not let anyone else determine who,
You will love, and who you will be
Because that is your own right when you are free.
We come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and ages
Velvet Rage explains the stages.
Moving to the big city,
Everything’s just so wild and pretty.
Shiny and new
You look up and say “Thank you!”
Finally escaping the small town way
You’ll always remember your first day.
Meeting all kinds of men and boys
It’s more fun than your childhood toys.
Gay bars galore.
An unhealthy search for more and more.
Feeling another mans parts,
Electricity is released inside
And your left wondering how could I ever hide?
This piece of me
That isn’t beastly.
It’s just different not good, not bad
And yes, some of us want to be a dad.
Learning the difference between sex and lust
And when a guy is just looking to bust.
Going to your first Pride,
Showing acceptance worldwide.
Coming out stories,
A whole animal kingdom
Is that how you spell come?
Wolves, otters, and bears
Each determined by their own specific flares.
Gaga, death drops, and “girl please”
Make a queen come to her knees.
A vernacular all our own
Words change with a shady tone.
The sex finder.
A hot fuck
Feeling like a schmuck.
Dancing till the sun comes up
Dealing with that guy that says, “Sup?”
Fire Island and P-Town
Experiencing a come down.
Limits are tested
Finding out how much you are truly invested.
We will never digress.
Standing for love
And rising above.
Means you were born this way.
We didn’t ask for this blessing in disguise
But fuck it’s one amazing surprise.
A life unlike any other
In which you find many a brother
An indescribable bond
That truly goes beyond.
Never forget how lucky you are
And the progress you’ve made so far.
Sometimes it’s just nice to hear that you’re incredible
Delicious and totally amazing,
So please keep those guns blazing.
I just wanted to let you know
That you’re beyond status quo.
You might not have heard this in a while,
But you’re crushing life and doing it in style.
Give yourself a pat on the back
And your tuckas a smack.
Hey gurl hey!
The amazing life of being a gay.
