I Am Also Yours
I Am Also Yours…He Said Of Her
(Apropos A Beloved Child)
Not until you have been
‘bused and scorned like me,
can you ever know how it is to be
treated like a child conceived in mortal sin
locked in the closet; denied to live like the free.
Oh, what great lies were created and told;
what blatant fallacies were allowed to persevere?
All because the meek were afraid to break the mold;
preferring rather, to serve the vanity of society’s fierce fear—
Yes I too, am a blessed child of your God;
identified in nature as a creature of His will.
A fish is a fish, be it a trout, guppy or cod;
if the Maker was a She, wouldn’t you love Him still?
Or would you succumb to the bigotry of man’s begotten will?
