Do you know how it feels to hide with thoughts repressed deep down inside? I guess you just loved the lie. Truth is, you can’t decide where my heart resides. You want to cure me of this epidemic. You call me sick. I wish I had said it, the words to admit to you who I am. My entire life I was dealt the wrong hand and cast aside from the man that I am. I’ve never felt so free. It kills me to hear you say you “choose to love me.” I was hoping that would be a given, given our history. You think I’m wrong but I never felt better. Stop living in denial. Stop loving the lie. I thought blood was thicker than water. You think I’m wrong but I never felt better. I know I disappointed you, but I’ve got nothing to prove. My entire life I was dealt the wrong hand, but now I’ve realized this is who I am. I’ve made my decision. You’re either with or against me. I’m standing firm. It’s who I am. You can’t keep me down. Iʼm moving on. I’m living free. You canʼt stop me now.
