There is a secret I carry with me everyday,
My whole life could change if the wrong people found out,
It is a secret I used to be unsure of and ashamed of,
But now it is one of which I am proud.
This secret of mine is a part of who I am,
And even though I love myself and this part of me,
It cannot yet be revealed.
There are too many people who discriminate,
Too many people who call it a sin
And I'm not ready to personally feel that hate
From the people to whom I am kin.
Someday my secret will be out,
With it will come my relief,
I can only hope that the world will understand
And support all the women and men
That are different like me.
