Hard To Be Civil

There is a bang to our Personality. We have accepted our sexuality. We are full of Nervous energy. No confusion with Our Identity. We are of sound mind And Conscience. Feel the intensity, The time is upon us. We stuff down Our feelings. With us there is no Concealing. Ready to snap and full Of anger. It spreads through us like Cancer. Confused about Being alive. It's a miracle any of Us survive. Feeling guilty, inadequate, and Shameful. It makes it difficult to remain Stable. Drug and alcohol abuse is a Common occurrence. We can go the distance, We have endurance. Discrimination is openly Expected. We are treated like Were infected. So much internalized Homophobia. It's not all rainbows and Utopia. You're not always going To be accepted. The looks, comments, You feel disconnected. When you're told that Your evil. It makes it hard to Be civil. Turbo1904 ?

Like a pinball, we bounce around from hazard to hazard until we fall into a trap. Isn't that exciting? Aloha!
