Don't call me Dave
Or Mr. Campbell
That's my dad
And I'm not him
Not saying I'm better
Just different
I'm not a Democrat
I'm not a Republican
Don't call me gay
Or straight
Or black
Or white
I'm not a man
But don't think me a woman
I have no use for your foolish labels
I'm greater than the sum of my parts
And can be anything I want at any time
You say I'm a good person
But I'm no better than you
I don't want to be confined
To your simple ideals
I just want to be me
To be liked for who I am
You say you want to pray for me
I say pray for yourself
I know where I stand
This world wants to make me conform
But I refuse to let it
Others may not understand
You may laugh at the strange things I do
But that's just because you don't take the time
To understand that this is me
In a world where nothing ever seems real
At least I can still be me

Who really cares what you do. Do what you please or do what I say. Makes no difference to me. Bill

My favourite lines were, "You say you want to pray for me, I say pray for yourself, I know where I stand,"

Glorious rights. High praise from my Den!

Warm Love,
