Do you care? That's Thursday's Poem

Like to know

This may be the year I come out
For a long time even my kids
They didn't know, I wouldn't tell
But they figured out they don't care

I don't tell friends most wouldn't care
When the subject comes up they talk
Want to know to them it matters
It might to me as well I'd like

We like to know from each other
I'd be proud if I'm the oldest *

* My coming out will be a revealing of my age.  Not a whole lot of people know how old I really am.  I don't tell.

So? Are you coming out Jim?

My question as well! Better late than never.

That is a tender reflection. I'm wondering about "they don't care" and "most wouldn't care". That can mean both affirmative or negative reactions.

Yeah, agree with Anmol that those lines could be comforting or accusing or just uncaring. I hope it's the first.

I wonder too about the mixed reactions. I had a friend who came out at 72. After four husbands and eight children. She told me relationships with women were just as complicated as relationships with men.

In so many cases I think everyone knows... I had a colleague once who came out, and it was so very obvious.

Wondering also, hoping not caring means loving people to be who they are.

I think sometimes the ones we fool the most ... is ourselves.

Most people know but deny it or they know and their fine with it. We too often are our own roadblocks.
