Look and See: Claim to Be

Look at me.
What do you see?
A boy dressed in clothes,
Or just a Pagan, a part Jew?

Look at me when I’m speaking!
What do you see?
A faggot, a writer, a Poet:
A messed up fuck?

What do you see?
Have you wrapped your head around
The thought that I’m gay:
That I’m Pagan,
A poet?

Look at me!
What do you see in me?
Am I so alien from attributes
For me to be loved;

What do you see
When you look at me!
Who do you plan me to be!

Look at me!
What do you see?
Am I hell-worthy,
Am I human?

Am I human?

Lying on the pavement,
Blood surrounding body,
As sight disappears.
Is this to be my fate?

Look at me,
God Damnit!
It this my fate?
Am I to die alone,
Cold and lonely on the street?

Am I even worthy enough for a trial?
Am I Human Enough to put him away?
Am I human?
Do you see me this way.

Look at me:
Look at me god damnit!
Am I human enough to live:
To breathe:
To love?

Am I human enough to be me,
To be loved;
No matter who it may be?
