I didn’t mean to I didn’t mean to Be someone I wasn’t. I meant to be me. I plan to be me every day But sometimes you get this watered down version A massaged expression Of yuk! I’m going to say the word That overused trending wornout word, Authenticity Somehow, from very young, I was a crusader in A quest for truth Which of course meant impersonating someone else for 40 years. It was a lot of work In the mirror Do I look gay? do I look straight? Should I stay away From that woman who seems so lovely. You would think I would’ve gotten over it by now But I haven’t I can’t forget the men I didn’t want to sleep with but did The women I wanted to sleep with but didnt. I didn’t mean to I didn’t mean to be someone I wasn’t.
