from Nhojj Poetry Vol. 1 by Nhojj



A couple years ago, I was invited to sing at a benefit for LGBT Youth. I started writing this piece to help spread the word about the shelter and our young people who need it.

Unfortunately, that fundraiser never happened, but this poem stayed with me...


I am trans….
I am 13…
I am gay…
I am 16…
I am lesbian…
I am 14…
I am queer…
I am…

on the streets
I came out last week, last month

My mom cried
My dad replied, yelling
Get out!
I came out here

Street life is hard
You know my friend Becky
She killed herself last night, and
Olivia was stabbed last week.

Sometimes, when I am lucky, I crash on a friend’s couch, for a night or two. But friends… real friends are hard to find. Will you HELP

Our mouths may never utter this cry
But the question lies unspoken
in our eyes…
