I'll Still Love YouMother, Mother, look into my eyes,I'll Still Love You2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
What do you see?
Mother, Mother, If I told you,
What would you think of me?
Would I become the black sheep?
The family taboo?
How would your love for me change
If I shared my secrets with you?
Maybe one day you'll see these words
And you'll understand
But I hope these words don't keep you from resting peacefully
In God's Promised land
I do not love your husband, this man I call "Dad"
Believe it or not, I don't do the things I do just to make him mad
My dislike for the majority of men stems from him
His words and ways make my future with a man seem rather dim
I mean really, tell me the truth, does he really love me?
If it were up to him, he'd leave us for the Army
Mother, Mother, these words are painful
But I wanted to tell you this
Before I have to go
Remember the night you tried to make me promise not to go down that road?
Well thankfully, I distracted you so I wouldn't have to say "no"
The truth is, I like girls as much as boys if not more
Thank YouWe all fight the weights on our backsThank You2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And we all fight the strain of our daily lives
But every once in a while
Someone will come along
And make that load
So much more bearable
I once trudged on with my own weight
And, thanks to my own foolishness,
That weight would always grow
But I met these people
Who I love dearly
And they blew away the burdens I was carrying
They showed me what life could be without loneliness
They showed me love and patience
And I love them more than the moon herself
I'd give my soul, heart, and life to them
I love them with all my heart
Where love could be taken so lightly
I say love with the might of an ocean
And I hope they see this and take to heart
That I never want to be without them

'Tis you who bear the spear of Rafael, you say?
Carry the banner, you who are right and we the wrong.
Colorless sight doing thyself no favor, believe me.
Clinging to the Old, snapping away like cornered dogs.
You speak practiced words, loud enough to block your questions.
Your ignorant tongue, no one died and made you God.
Open thy foolish eyes, step into cold waters and may you not drown.
Girls in shorts, boys in dresses, lipstick is made for any lips.
Say you, "Hark you demons, for you shall burn in Hell."
Well I take up my cross and shield, yet you sharpen swords.
My Father's hand will lay the smack, not another man.
I see you merely on an Earthly throne, who are you to measure me?
Love is love, change has come, and yet again you revolt.
Hands fit in human hands, regardless if one be man or woman.
Seethe in self-righteous hatred, you repeat your script.
Change be your worst fear, and cower you do in its colors.
May you not confuse you
