let me be me

There is a sadness in my heart today
It’s heavy, hard, and ready to break
“It will be freedom,” I’d like to say
A life to live I would like to take

Standing tall and unafraid
People taking issue as they want
No change in me as a band-aid
Cause who I am is not a taunt

I am a man living in heat
Sex and life feed my creativity
If you don’t like it take a seat
It’s all you can do to let me be me

I know I am human in all it entails
The dark and light of humanity
Exist in me within all the details
All of life’s coarseness embraced by me
