They frown upon me, even when they don't know me. They think I have some sort of disease, so they sheild me from their children. I know my parents love me, they've said the words too, kissed me on the forehead and whispered, "your secret is safe with me." But I didn't want it to be a secret, who I really am shouldn't be locked away and only exposed behind closed doors. I guess they did it to protect me before, you know, from the judgemental eyes of the public. I didn't understand back then, but now I do, and it's too late to rectify the mistake I have inflicted on myself.
My name is Adam, and I am attracted to the same sex. Love me or hate me, I can't change, even if I tried, even if I wanted to.
