Acceptance

Why must we hide

Why must we apologize

Why must we be criticized

For who we are inside

 

I see no reason to lie

People are monsters

Hating those who just want

 

To love

 

Who they were made

 

To love

 

No mattter man or woman

No matter black or white

Love has no color

 

In fact, it's color blind

 

God does not make people wrong

He did not give you a mind

To be ignorant about those

Who are different than your own kind

 

And the truth is, we're all just people

 

Should she be so terrified

That her son will be patronized

Because he has two mothers to tuck him in at night

They're better than any "father" who left his son behind

 

Homosexual or hetero

They're two of the best mothers I will ever know

Their love is unconditional

And their hearts will be the first place

 

Their son calls home
