someone once told me i had a choice in my sexuality. this is in responce as it bugged me.

Choice To Be

Choice to breathe
Choice to live
Choice to fight
Choice to love

When you have
So many choices
In this life

Do you stop

And wonder

If you're making
The right choices

Do you stop

And wonder

How your choices
Affect those you
Care so much about

So many people
Will try and tell you
That everyone has choices
Some of them hard, some
Some of them easy

But please someone tell me
Since when you have a choice
Of who you are

To be white?
To be black?
To be gay?
To be straight?

Some people
May tell you
You'll have
These choices

You could dirt
Youurself to be darker
You could bleach
Yourself to be lighter
You could lie
To yourself and others
You could deny yourself
To yourself for all your life

You know what...
You stare back at them
And tell them

They had a choice
To open their big mouth today

And they took it

Did they stop..

And wonder...

About the consquences
Of there choices.

I especially liked the part with the dirt and the bleach! Nice thought, nice choice to write it down for us all to share!
