I am a 44 year old male in the UK. I have struggled with my sexuality since the age of around 10 years old, self acceptance being my biggest demon. I am married to the love of my life and have two beautiful children. Last year my demons came to a head and I came out to my wife and eldest daughter, after 20 years of marriage, that I am bisexual. At the time when I felt so confused and alone, writing things down seemed to help me, and those words turned in to poems/lyrics. Things seemed to calm down and the writing stopped. Then a few months ago, things come back even more aggressive than before, but with a massive impact on my mental and emotional state. I started writing again and now the words just seem to be flowing, but whatever I can get out my head is s little less that I try to unravel. I have posted some stuff on LGBT forums and have had positive responses. People have been able to associate their own experiences and situations to my poems and some have said they have helped them express how they are feeling better to others. Poetry was something I always enjoyed as a child and I guess went in to hiding when I did. So here I am, writing and wanting to get my words out there.
Silent Beach --------------------- Feel the sand beneath your feet Hear the waves Feel the peace Let your worries sail away On a wave, far away In a moment Your worry free Take a breathe Count to three Peaceful feelings Yours to keep Feelings from a silent beach
