The ClosetThe monsters aren't in the closet.The monsters are outside.When we grew up we realizedThat in there's where we should hide.They chased us in here with their knivesAnd framed us for our "crimes".They point and say, "Beware the closet!Monsters are inside!"I hear them talk about "my kind"Through cracks between the door.All I ask is for respect,How could I ask for more?The hateful glares, those judging looksAnd all the dreadful thingsAssault my waking momentsand stalk me in my dreams.I shake and shiver, whimper and stir,Safe inside my closet.But safeness seems so temporarywhen outside foes appall it.We've done no wrong but it's not safeTo expose my self and soul.I lock it in a box to hideWhere no one else will go.I know there's others out thereWho left to face the worldBut some are not as brave as theyWho never did return.The monsters aren't in the closet.The monsters are outside.But here I sit and here I wait'till I can leave with PRIDE.

I am a 14 going on 15 year old Guy. Sure my body says otherwise, but that isn't anyone's business other than my own. You know? Someone's body shouldn't be able to define who a person is.If you'r
