    Default Coming Out and Going In (Non-Fiction)

    NOTE: This poem may not be suitable for all readers as it deals with sexual orientation. Skip it now if you can't handle such a topic. I wrote all on my own, and I am thinking about delivering it in my speech class what do you think?



    Coming Out and Going In

    For those who don't know, I am bisexual by the way
    It means I am both straight and gay

    When people think of love, they of a man and woman.
    When I think of love, I think of a man OR woman.

    When I came out, I was more than ecstatic
    Even though my parents' reaction was erratic

    I was in the closet far too long, far too late
    I was admittedly pretending I was straight

    Nobody knew, a secret unrevealed
    I thought my fate was eternally sealed

    The ridicule would linger for hours I hear
    Which was ultimately my greatest fear

    Pretending to be something else was a solution quick
    I really did think I was being expertly slick

    My brain was crying, and my heart wanted to shout
    Everything inside me wanted the revelation to come out.

    But I worried and thought, what will I become?
    The trusted friend, or the epitome of dumb?

    The day finally came when I was really glee
    When all is said and done, I was finally free

    I felt my confidence start to rise
    Which to me, was a total surprise.

    I originally intended to feel sad and crappy
    But all I feel is uplifted and happy.

    It feels as if I lifted a huge weight off my shoulder
    I was glad to have pushed that final boulder.

    Now I am entering a world, which to me is unknown
    And I am glad to hear, that I am not alone.

    A ride for my life, but where will I go?
    Hopefully it's nothing more than a charming tableau.

    Love or loss, what ever that comes my way,
    I am prepared, no matter what the price to pay.

    I'd rather be proud of what I am
    Rather than continue and untruthful sham.

    Don't worry, I don't like my men straight like and arrow
    I like my men with a mind un-narrow.

    I don't like my women platinum blonde and fake
    I like my women to be any color, model, and make.

    Bisexuality has gotten a bad rap
    Mostly due to some verbal mishap

    Even though the mean names lead to sorrow,
    I always remember, there is always a tomorrow

    Many call bisexuality nothing but mutiny
    I think of it as equal opportunity

    If you are in hiding, for fun or for your health
    Don't be afraid to come out. Just be yourself.
    Get Bent Dr. Phil. Your show is shit.

    The Bob & Tom Show rules!

    Great poem!

    But I wouldnt read it to my speech class if I were you. I dunno, some people might get a bit weird/touchy/immature about it.

    Bah, that's *their* problem and if they "can't handle" it then they're idiots.

    Who cares if people are immature about it. There will always be those type of people in the world, i say read it and be proud. you are obviously not afraid to be yourself, and i applaud that so why not read it? don't worry about people think.
