It’s pride month
I’m bisexual
I have been my whole life
I didn’t know
Because my parents
Used to say
I was gay as a punishment
I never took it that way
But they shamed me
And it made me think,
Like all my other thoughts,
that I was bad
I used to talk to other girls about boys
Just to talk to girls
I’m married to a boy 
So people still shame me for saying
I’m bisexual
I’m pretty sure they don’t know 
What it means 
It means
I know myself better than I used to
And I can look back
And know who I was,
Who I am
