I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

Who’s the one behind the mask? There’s someone one on the inside
looking outside not even knowing that they are on the outside of the inside
missing hearing that little voice within. One day, the person behind the mask
gets uncomfortably comfortable with seeing only what they allow themselves to
see. Holding on to false images of yourself, and the world has karmic
implications. The world is upside down until only you set it right side up.
What seems to be upon close examination is not what it seemed to be!


Want to make a fire with
two sticks? Did you bait the fishing rods properly?
Questions I wasn’t ask but
a man that imagined started his questions with a smile on his face that showed
how proud of me he was. His obsession about being the best ‘father’ he could
was all he cared about. Those moments are lost to us and I can only wonder,
what would my ‘father’ do or say after our personas traded places. Would he
allow me to embrace my sexuality and my ‘misfit’ charms with pride? Or would he
be the ‘father’ that struggle to understand my life?

Regardless of his presence
in my life, I am sure that I would be the ‘man’ he didn’t raise. I will FOREVER
be the ‘man’ who do dumb and embarrassing things, the ‘man’ that knows DEEP in
himself that if he wants to soar, he MUST risk the occasional, spectacular
crash. Though hasn’t been in my life from the start, I often wonder how can he
feel ashamed of the gay man that I am; the gay man that lives positively ‘queer’
for all with ‘human’ eyes to see.
