I Wonder

“One of the hardest things in life is having words
in your heart that you can’t utter.”
-James Earl Jones

I grew up in a suburban town full of traditional, right-leaning people. I came out to my friends and family when I got to college because I was too afraid to come out before then. When I was 16, my father died. He never knew one of the most important things about me. I wonder, almost every day, if he knew...if he wondered...what he would've thought. I hope that soon, we don't have to be afraid to "come out of the closet" so no one ever has to keep that part of themselves from someone they love, and live the rest of their life wondering.
