Gay & Shiny 2.0

This is me.

Beautiful and flawed.

Caring and conflicted.

I was hiding.

Had my wings clipped.

I did it myself.

I was scared.

To be ME.

Never had realised ,

That the universe had already defined ME.

I just had to own it.

Easy peasy?

Anything but that.

It’s difficult to own your truth and happiness.

I had to unlock my gay-dom.

There lied the key to a realm of love and liberation.

It’s one step at a time.

Just having declared years ago, wasn’t enough;

Now i discern.

It’s also about doing all that i love .

Bringing my cravings to fruition.

Breaking my own barriers.

Being gay.

My heels make me happy.

I own myself just a little more, everytime I twirl in them.

My clothes make me fabulous.

And i love myself more.

This journey was never meant to be simple and subtle.

But why did i stop having fun?

As i dab on my gloss,

I wonder,

If its too gay, too shiny?

Hell, yeah!!

Wasn’t it always supposed to be so?

Well, now I know!
