My Dad Thinks I am A Fag

Dad, I walked from that bathroom terrified,
Alone,
I needed you,
I could not tell you.
The dude fucked me up!!!
You were just right outside the door.
I know you would have beat him up - but if I had told you,
Dammit - You would think I was a fag.

For years I have not enjoyed nor am I good at the manly things you are good at,
I am not the man you are Ė less than,
I am not a real man.
Baseball, football, hunting and fishing,
I wasnít the fucking football hero like you were
After all-
Thatís what makes a real man. Right?

Everytime I didnít sign up for ball
Your disappointment says
my son is different -he is a fag.

Everytime you didnít share my excitement regarding my music,
Your lack of interest says
my son is different - he is a fag.

Everytime you arrived late for my music productions,
Your shame said
my son is different - he is a fag.

I did not become the star running back of the football team,
I was the band captain,
I was voted by my teachers as the Most Outstanding Senior Boy.
The puzzled, bewildered look in your eyes said-
my son is different - he is a fag.

Dad, I walked from that bathroom terrified,
Alone,
I needed you,
I could not tell you.
The dude fucked me up!!!
You were just right outside the door.
I know you would have beat him up - but if I had told you,
Dammit - You would think I was a fag.
