The Art of Self Definition

So now you look at me like you never knew

How could you not?

I speak the way I’ve always spoken 

Dress and walk and posture the same 

I saw the same affections as ever

There has been no reason to question me, never 

You can’t redefine what I feel inside

Just because you choose now to see me 

I believe what I believe, understand what’s true to me, cast away what does not fit 

My truth, I walk – live – breathe it 

You get no say in who I am or am not
