Coming out

bulldyke's picture

the first step
will i fall?
the hardest
of them all

who do i tell
who can i trust?
who can i tell
i know that i must

that special door
that far off place
where all and none
have our own space

coming out
we know it's hard
and yet we all do
for it's not the final card

life goes on
we don't have to die
we can go on
though sometimes we may cry

it is not the final word
oh no, not at all
to trust someone enough
to take a leap, and not fall

this is for everyone who's come out, who is going to come out, and for the lost souls who never got the chance. rest in peace.

I love this poem! I really like all the others too! Your poetry is awesom and inspirational!

In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on.

Awesome poem

Wow. Blows me away. Everyone here can so relate to this poem, me included. If there ever comes a book about coming out, that should be in there.

"What is the purpose of life? It is to create our own purpose."
