Today I was queer


Today I was queer

By May Kwek

Today they looked at me
And thought that I was queer
But I believe that there is nothing wrong with me
And hence I did not fear

Today they said that I was strange
And chastised me for being odd
I felt hurt but never mind
Their words are but empty talk

Today they laughed at me
Because I was so different
But I simply smiled because
I was put here for a different reason

Today they gathered around me
And tried to force me to change
But I told them I was me
And that there was nothing to change

Then today they finally saw
What I always knew
That I knew better who I was
Because to myself I was always true
