Doesn't mean I see myself with a prince
Even though I plan on getting married
Doesn't mean it'll be a man, what about a woman?
I see the day I'm giving birth
A cute little girl
But what if she has two mommies?
Or my son has double soccer moms?
Which one of us will walk our girl down the aisle?
No daddy around
Would she be ashamed to say I have two moms?
Or would she be walking by our side with a smile?
It doesn't matter who I'll marry
Only that I fall in love
I want to find the one I can pamper
Whether their sex is man or woman

There is this illusion,
That being "bi" is cool.
Jumping to a conclusion
About me is just cruel.
I didn't dream this up.
I'm not playing pretend.
If you call me a slut,
It's your moral sin.
I'm not bisexual
Just because I'm greedy.
It's been perpetual
I'm ostracized by Straights
For being perverted.
Shut out by Lesbians
For being diverted.
"You can't marry a man
And claim to love women.
You have to take a stand.
Make a choice. Us or Them?"
There's no way to explain
Why I'm bisexual,
But the title is stained
When deemed conceptual.
I'm faced with the same fears
As so many others:
It took me twenty-four years
To tell my own mother.
Disillusions and lies:
I stand here before you,

Just one night for us to be together
Locked Away in a Quiet Room,
Being focused on each other.
Gazeing at your Smile with Desire,
A Burning dance behind your lips.
Getting Closer....And Closer,
Wanting to feel them a little bit.
Just a Gentle kiss is what I want,
A little something to let me know.
Expressing what we feel together,
Of How far Love will go.
What I'm feeling just Overflows,
I want to pour it all out on you.
Shower you with Sweet love all over,
Knowing you feel the same too.
If I could have just One night,
To show you how I Truely feel.
Would you spend that one night,
And make all my Dreams Real?

Buford glared at him and swatted the Indian student across the head. "Will that help clear it up for you?" he groaned.

**This story is a combination of the movie-verse and the comic-verse, occurring before the Civil War timeline
For perhaps the eighth time that night, Steve Rogers glanced at his watch, trying to be very discreet about it so as not to offend the group of people milling about him. He felt very uncomfortable and out of place dressed in a drab suit and tie - the suit stretched to the point that the seams were practically groaning in protest. Okay, so he might've bulked up a bit with all the wars and skirmishes that he'd been involved in over the past year. His broad shoulders and muscular arms were constrained enough to prevent much movement inside what he displeasingly thought of as a classy straitjacket.
Why had he allowed Tony to talk him into this?

I never pictured myself as a father.
Getting married? Well, that's natural, that's how life is supposed to be, you fall in love and met that special someone that's meant to share every single day of her life with you.
Getting a job? That I can do. Something that challenges you every single day, because it isn't only about you, is about the people that count on you and expect big things of you.
Growing up, growing old. I was never afraid of such thing. Life is like that, the only thing you have to do is enjoy every day of it. Telling the ones you love that you love them, showing the world what are you capable of, getting new chances of meeting yourself under different circumstances.
Being scared, being happy, being sad, being depressed, being stressed and being euphoric. We are humans and that is how we work.
I have always been more an inventor.
Planning, creating, imagining, building, sharing, enjoying. Ideas, that was my goal, that was my reason to keep moving forward.

His daughter grabbed it from him and took a piece of meat before passing the plate onto her fiancé. "A little rough, but I'm positive," Candace replied. "As long as I can start saving up a bit for music college, I don't care." Shortly after Phineas and Ferb had helped their mother set the table, Candace and Jeremy arrived. However, because of Phineas' muteness, Ferb made up a clever excuse to keep them away from their sister and her fiancé; he claimed that Isabella needed some help with some singing, and before either of their parents could say anything, Phineas and Ferb had left the house and walked across the street to visit their neighbour.
Of course, Isabella had been informed about this by text, and so instead all three sat in her backyard until Linda called her sons back.
