I came across this moving poem by my myspace friend Joseph, aka AfroCentricNeoHipHopSoul and with his permission I am sharing it with you guys on my site. It's a very moving poem that epitomizes what it means to love and accept yourself just as you were created.

God Heal Me/ I'm Coming Out 
Current mood: Expecting A Miracle

God Heal Me of the Pain

God Heal Me of the Hurt

God Heal Me of the Depression

God Heal Me of the Low Self Esteem

God Heal Me of the voice that tells me I'm less than

That two brothers can't love each other

That I'm sick because I'm a brother who loves brothers

That I need to be something or somebody else beside what I am

That I'm a faggot

That I'm a nigger

That I'm a disgrace

That I'm a dissapointment

That I'm a disease

That tells me that I'll never get back to that place of knowing and being the Young, Gifted, African American , Same Gender Loving, Christian Identified, Nubian King that I am

God Heal Me of the internalized and externalized homophobia

The internalized and externalized racism

God Heal Me of the feeling of being disconnected form myself

God Heal Me of the pain that has been inflicted upon me by people that I have admired, respected, and even loved and help me to forgive these people because I know that they know no better

I'm Coming out of Homophobia

I'm Coming out of Racism

I'm Coming out of Low Self Esteem

I'm Coming Out of Depression

I'm Coming out of suicidal and Self-Destructive Thinking

I'm Coming Out of Financial Difficulty

I'm reclaiming my Peace

I'm reclaiming my joy

I'm reclaiming my Faith

I'm reclaiming my testimony, my confidence, and my praise as a Black Same Gender Loving Person of Faith

I'm reclaiming my goals and dreams

I'm reclaiming and taking control of my academic situation

I'm coming out of all these things and I'm coming out with my hands up
