Hate this town, he doesn't understand.

I can't even go on a walk around my neighborhood without hearing homophobic or hateful comments yelled at me from cars driving by or kids on bikes.
I can't walk outside without fearing that I'm going to get beat up for how I look.
I can't go down one of the streets by my house without risking walking by my abusers house.
And my dad still questions why I hate this town so much and why I can't wait to get out of here.
