Mother may I love him...

Mother may I love him...

A Poem by Mia

I am sweet skinned, sticky and open

To your words of love

Why won’t you give them?

Why won’t you see me,

Through clear eyes and honest truths

 

Don’t burn the bridges

As I try to cross them

To get to you

With your blood with fathers’

They flow through my veins

Mother, see my tender care for HIM

 

I am sweet skinned, sticky and open

To your words of love

Please give them to me

I am different for my brothers

Love us equally yet uniquely

 

I don’t ask for forgiveness

It isn’t my sin but yours

It isn’t my shame but yours

What did Madonna say? "Love is where you find it." Besides, being gay is trendy now. It is around here anyway.

I thought this one was great. This was so honest and open and tragic yet strong. Really nice work.

As soon as I saw the title of this piece, I had to read it. Thank you for sharing this and shedding light on a situation and struggle that many many people face in our world. A world which can be very hateful and judgmental. I applaud all people who muster up the courage to share who they truly are. Love is love. A beautiful piece of writing (:

Nicely done Mia. My niece is a married lesbian living in Massachusetts. They have two biological children, girls. one each - same father (from the bank!) - so the girls are half-sisters.

It was important to them I attend their wedding. I did as did my own married daughters and their husbands. It was a blast.

Should my niece have stayed in the closet and lived a lie? I don't think so. Life is too short.

Nice Mia... interesting that we all continue to seek approval after we've broken away.

Thanks Tegon
It's very difficult when parents are unaccepting of their childrens' choices in love. We all want to respect our parents' wishes, but love is too important to give up. What one has to be sure of is the motivation behind the love. It is said we all do what we do because our parents did it....or didn't.....something to ponder. Strong emotions in this write. Well written. lydi**

What a strong poem Mia. It's a real shame that some parents feel this way towards their children. A feeling that I will never understand as a parent.

I am always sadden when I hear that someone was "disowned" in a sense by their parents or family.

To be truthful, we have four girls-- the two oldest are 14 and 11, we tell them that one of the four of them better be gay just so we can prove we are good parents, we also joke that which ever one is will be treated better. LOL

We all laugh about that, but we want our kids to know that we don't care, just be good first an foremost and we will love an accept them no matter what. I hope others will read you poem and truly think about it.

Not so much a gay relationship but the freedom to be gay and love who you love! Thank you Rose!
Wow that was gut wrenching read... being treat differently based on gender is a moral sin indeed and so hurtful to those who face it... very nicely expressed.
