Student Comes Out As Gay To Class & Friends w/ Spoken Word Poetry
He writes on The Gaily Grind:
While I’ve never been afraid of public speaking, the thought of telling a room full of people my innermost thoughts, scared the ever living shit out of me.
In attendance was my poetry class who I had grown to love dearly, but had never alluded to that I was gay. I changed every pronoun before that night, and stayed away from the fact that my muse at the time was a boy who had broken my heart. Also in the audience was everyone who came out to see their friends do poetry, strangers I had never met, and a small group of my own friends who had no idea what I was going to read since I rarely, if ever, shared my writing.
This was my first time ever reading my newest poem at the time, “i hit send, or modern meltdown.”
Check out "I Hit Send, or Modern Meltdown":
Steven calls this "one of the most memorable nights of my life."
