Accept—No Exceptions—Accept

Good Signs Sunday

accept3It’s simple, really.
The only thing I need to do
as a parent,
my LGBT child,is accept.
Accept you
like I would if you were
short, or tall
brown eyed, green, or blue
blonde haired, or black.
My child, you aren’t broken
don’t need to be fixed.
All you need, my love
all you need is my love.

    Beautiful and strong. I never thought there’d be a day when I’d use these particular words to describe a poem.
