Coronation Street

Identity Stories Poem

Let me tell you a story

One you might not know

You might see the scars

But most aren’t on show

Have you felt uncomfortable

For just being you

Like everyone’s watching

All that you do?

You can’t wear the clothes

They say they are wrong

You can’t play your music

They hate that damn song

More time spent wishing

To be somebody else

It’s hard living life

Despising yourself

Now the threats get much worse

And words turn to violence

So afraid in the dark

A scream in the silence

My story’s your story

We’re the same flesh and bone

I just want you to know

You will never be alone
