My mother raised me Christian,
With a daily spoon of the word ,
And constant drinks of the Spirit,
I believed that I was going directly to heaven,
But that belief only lasted till I turned eleven.
The age I realized that I had a stronger emotional inclination to women than men,
I had no idea what exactly I was feeling then,
But I knew that I wanted to talk to someone about it,
Well, at least I thought I wanted to until on that Sunday, the man who had taught me to love my neighbor as myself,
Preached about how my kind of sin belonged to the unforgivable shelf.
You see, he went on to quote the likes of Sodom and Gomorrah,
Talking about how I was destined for hell if I chose to love her,
