My Son

From the time of conception,
An emotional rollercoaster
My son was given to me
Through time accepted eternity.
I knew who he'd be
Before he entered this world
My son is beautiful
As my story unfolds
"My God", people would say
When they saw him for the first
"But you're white", came the response
Expecting my son as the worst
Get a life I would say
To those who disrespect
My blood, my soul, 
together we are whole.
As we've grown together
Our love shines through it all
The stares, the glares
There is nothing to compare.
"Love who you are", 
I say from my heart
Treat everybody equally
We all bleed, lets be here peacefully.
