2014's first Poem - by Billy 1-19-14

I listened to others most of my life.
What it caused me was heartache and strife.
I even poisoned Su who was my wife.
Thank God now, she has what she deserves,a life.
I just couldn't give her what I didn't have, the
Sitting, in this cell tonight is living proof.
Many nights I'd wonder, how'd I come to this point.
I keep ending up on that football field, smoking
My first joint.
From that moment on, I knew it would be easier
To hide.
Just because I was so scared to admit what I was
Most of my fear has gone away, because I'm living from
Day to day.
Now I listen to others who have gone my way.
Praise God I'm no longer ashamed to be Gay!
I wish though, my four stars, realized their Dad has
A terrible disease.
All I must do now, is to give them up
To my higher power in the skies.
And one day maybe near will answer my cries.
This new life of freedom, comes with but one price.
Do what I have to, and not to roll those dice.
Oh I look forward to 2014, in service and helping others.
To all of you who call me Sister or Brother.
