Down and out
And no one cares
Lost and lonely
No one's there
Now I'm lying down to sleep
My dreams and hopes I shall not keep
You shun me out because I'm bi
Within my heart I want to die
Why is life so cruel and harsh?
Is this all meant to be?
Just because my love is different
Is this my destiny?
I'm mocked and poked at
Everyday of my life
I drown in this sea of misery
As I plunge in deeper with every stroke of my knife
Inside I am still a child
A scarred little girl wanting to be free
Outside I must wear a mask
To hide and trap the real me
I cry these tears of pain
Stinging like needles down my cheeks
My inner voice cries out to stop
But alas, I do not speak
Why do you all hate me?
Just because I do not love the same
Why must you keep me locked inside?
My ray of hope barely remains
In my heart I long to tell you
To rid my endless path in the dark
But I cannot come to say it
Too dim now is my spark
All I want is for you to love me
To treat me as one of your own
But instead you bow to the hatred of society
I will forever be alone
My time on earth is short, friend
I must now say goodbye
But I am not the cold and bitter one
So why am I to die?
