The doctors said to, “come on out”, but I was so afraid, “Be patient I said”. My mother said, “walk, child, walk”, but I would always fall. “Be patient I said”. My teacher said to “study hard”, but I would just sleep in class. “Be patient”, I said. My preacher said,” Stay on the right track”, but I never went to church. “Be patient”, I said. My boyfriend said, “Show me love”, but I never even said the words. “Be patient “, I said.
But now since I’ve come out, I can walk both in and out. Study hard and make good grades. In church is where I always stay. And even though he’s not with me now, He knows I love him, ask me how?!
