can you say you know who i really am
i wear my colors oh so bright even in the middle of the night
i don't dance a certain way or dress real fabulous
i'm not into manicures or facials or even pedicures
i don't walk with a switch or bend my wrist like this...
i don't talk with certain slang or hang out in a "gang"
i don't speak very loud or announce that i'm proud
i never asked to be this way nor am i blaming anyone
i won't hide in the closet since i already came out
i refuse to not speak up when i'm in a crowd
i can have a child or raise a family
i work as hard as you do and pay taxes too
i am smart and very wise with two eyes that see it all
i breathe and bleed the same as you and i pray to God too
you say i'm wierd and call me a freak
one thing you must remember is i'm real and thats unique
i tell you how it is you deny it ever was
they call me a dkye or lesbian some say i'm just gay
i tell you i am human just like you i just live another way
