I wrote this poem during my Senior year in High School in April 2013 for an assignment to pass my class. Then later that week I found out my school had registered me to compete in City Wide poetry slam competition at Boys & Girls High School in Brooklyn NY , were I won 1st place. After reading my poem at the competition & to everyone in school , everyone was telling me they were touched , I influenced some people , others didn't know that's what I go through everyday , Boys had came up to me & told me " I respect you , i will never pick on anyone gay no more , you guys are strong individuals " . I didn't know what to say , I was just happy I passed my class & I was mainly happy because I earned respect & I some how changed people lives.
