NEW ENGLAND, USA
Please don't tell anybody yet,
I've sneaked out of "the Prayer Closet"
To once again rejoin the race,
To meet new Friends, and show my face.
I've been "in the closet"--until of late,
I thought that I would suffocate.
It gets quite stuffy, what with all them candles,
So I left them within, with my beads and sandals.
I want to kind of blend in here,
With some new friends, and find laughter
No, my faith, I abandon not,
But there's more to life than the Closet lot.
So help me friends, here to adjust,
Help me make it--I'm going for bust.
I'm out here, a new leaf to turn,
So many things, I want to learn!
Please don't send me back to my room,
I don't want it to be my tomb.
I want to live life, before I die,
Being open to new Ideas to try.
So let's celebrate my coming out,
The time is right, there is no doubt!
I'll find time elsewise to study and pray,
But just for now, let's enjoy Today!
