    Don’t attack me
    for it was God who made me
    and it will be He who defends me.
    Don’t wound my body
    for your wound the creation
    that he built
    and set upon this earth.
    If you are to be believed
    then he chose my form
    he built this mind
    he built the heart
    from which this love you hate so
    pours.
    Do not
    do not speak to me
    of choice
    for if ever I was given a choice
    I never saw it.
    Do not look at me so
    for the life I live
    the life I will live
    will not be easy
    people like you
    will make it hard
    and don’t you think
    just think for a moment
    that if there had been a choice
    might not I have chosen the easier way.
    I am proud of the life I live.
    Proud of the person I am
    and the people I’ve loved.
    If it was choice
    it was a good one
    and your shame
    and it is your shame
    will never teach me regret
    and I will not bow my head before you
    repentant
    or raise my eyes to heaven to say
    forgive them, lord,
    they know not what they do,
    It’s not my place
    not my God,
    it’s just my love
    my life
    and I’m gonna live it
    and that’s the only responsibility
    I have.
