A Boy's Love

A Boy's Love

A Poem by SilentDreamer

Today I was sitting, watching a show
On the TV- not something
I do too often.
And on the show a man was singing
About love, about missing
Someone. 
His boyfriend.
My three year old sister,
Who's watching too,
Looks at me. 
She says, all upset,
"What is he sad about?"
I said, "He's in love
with someone."
"Who?" She asks.
" His boyfriend." I say hesitantly.
"Oh," she says, "Where is he?"
We continue talking.
But the thing that got me was to her,
Love was it. 
He loved his boyfriend. 
Okay. To her
Love is love. 
The end.
To a three year old it didn't matter
That they both were men.
So why is it so difficult
For other people
To accept?

Oh wow.. First let me say this was a fantastic read. Second, on a subject many turn from.. Love is love. To me it is the purist form of expression there is. Does not matter on with who, or the whys. Children see with eyes of pure, as all should. I also comment you on bringing forth this.. Great job!

Thanks :)
It's an interesting account. I'm not sure I would classify it as poetry. It's a statement of philosophy and moral attitude. You write well, making it easy to understand what you're trying to say. Please keep writing and develop that creative urge. While I don't agree with the moral statement I commend you for the courage to express yourself.

Maybe not poetry but if so oh well. :) We all have different opinions, thank you for the review!
This is very true to life. Little kids don't care if you're gay or not. Everyone should feel like that. This is great!

Everyone has a right to express their views and I like how you expressed yours in this poem. Especially in the lines

But the thing that got me wast to her,
Love was it.
He loved his boyfriend.
Okay. To her
Love is love.
The end.
To a three year old it didn't matter
That they both were men.
So why is it so difficult
For other peopl

Very true statements we should be able to love whoever we want. An excellently written piece :)
