Would take me for who I am, my friend,
Or would it be better to keep the masque?
Could I drop the facade and not pretend
To be someone that's not e'en in my past?
Would it be okay that I am more femme
Than other gay men, and not butch or "straight"?
Is it fine that I am not toned like them,
But will always be fat and overweight?
Can you see I'll ne'er be such a cutie,
Only a pathetic Average Joe?
Would you take me as I am with duty,
Or would pity be why you'd take me so?
This is my fear; why I choose singleness.
Would you have me, e'en with my weaknesses?
