I might sound petulant 
or childish 
or grouchy

But

hate
direction.

I hate being told
that I can't do something
because it's against a God
I don't believe in.

I hate being told
that I shouldn't speak up
because no one cares
about my voice.

I hate 
the nay-sayers
and homophobes
and frankly, awful people
that  hold me down 

I hate when they say
that because I'm opinionated 
and outspoken,
I'm childish.

They're wrong anyway.
I'm just here 
to be heard.
