    Some hide their fantasy and digest
    Society’s consumed beliefs

    Some wear tight jeans and broadcast their homosexuality

    Some are very particular, eloquent and master's at their craft
    Some take the easy way out and have sex real fast

    Some get last place even when they cross the finish line first
    Some end up in an hurst
    (pause)

    From sexual deviance!

    Some are mislead, and blind by their reality
    Some exhale and breathe through brutality

    Some give up
    Some shut up
    Some f$$K up
    Some work real hard and conquer their dreams

    Some have love from home; some ran away

    Some are very classy
    Savvy
    Some nasty
    Some I wish not to even to acclaim
    Some give their real name
    Some married
    Some preachers
    Some teachers
    Some with kids
    Some with small bids
    Some commit suicide
    Some think its genocide
    Some want to try
    some live
    some die
    but I
    oh I
    have seen all the gays of our life.....

    Mr. M,
    The "Gays" of our life which you so accurately and skillfully describe are really like everyone else in the "Ways" of our life.

    Well done and on the real as usual. Thanks.

    WOW!!

    Thanks for all the love. It went through my eyes and into my heart. You all have made me feel so great about always telling the truth. That is undoubtingly my only way of writing. My future is embellished in writing--- and this is actually the part where it all falls in place. I am ready to take E lynn Harris's spot. I am ready to fuse the James Baldwin of the past with a Modern outlook comparing the current conditions of Black Amerians and Black Gay Americans compared to our counterparts....
