Accept Me For Me Or I'll Be Gone

There was no way I was able
To untie the sturdy cable
Wrapped around my shaking neck
Because my life became a wreck
I hope you find me hanging here
A note covered in saddened tears
Saying that this was the end
And no one will understand
All the pain I'm living with
Something inside turned a switch
Reversing who I'm meant to be
Changing my life totally
From having friends to no one there
I could see the horrid fear
In their eyes when I explained
That a big and scary change
Was happening and I can't stop
I need to listen to my heart
And go from a football jock
To dresses and curly locks
Not one friend supported me
Even my so called family
Shunned me for this "sinful" act
So I made a deadly pact
To end all this humility
Because I just wanted to be
Happy for the real me
Now I fly with open wings
And my heart can really sing
A joyful tune as I soar
Happy like never before

    I agree with Peter, Sweet Pea. Hate that you ever felt this way. Very strong and emotional. Much love and many hugs to you, my sweet friend <3
