yearning for the continued love of ones mother before during and after "coming out" tell her about your sexuality.



Mother how should I say this?

how should I say this without knowing for sure

Correction I know but

But is it a big deal to me?

No!!!   but its something you may need to know

I'm gay

Yep there I said it

Now what?

Will you turn your back?

Will you disown me as you always swore?

hey if so I will be sad

But I wont die or turn back

For I remain the little girl that you use to hug and tuck in bed,

for I feel no shame 

but want love just the same

people look at me and don't have a clue

people joke about gays with me without a hint of my life

Do I conceal it well or are they just that dumb?

for my life is the same

I do nothing else different

I still love and care as always

I'm still open, honest and respectful

for my life IS the same

love comes in many different ways

love comes in many colors

love comes from pain

love come from joy

no matter what love comes ---and it has for me

I hope you can understand

and just love all the same

because I STILL am the little girl that you use to tuck in bed

And say I love you don't let the bed bugs bite

(((zakiya *love your name*)))

heartfelt, thought provoking write

"...because i still am the little girl that you used to tuck in bed
and say i love you don't let the bed bugs bite." my mom used to say the same thing to me...she's been dead 13 years, how i miss her.

(((HUGS))) and love,

karla. :(
