What Happened to Home?

My body doesn’t know how to be cold

It rejects intolerance and hatred

But with you it finds ease

 

Your sin has encompassed all of you

Its consumed your every being

 

With it its taken the foundation of our family

Our trust and our love for you has been crushed

 

My sadness lies in a clump at the bottom of my stomach

There’s a lump in my throat when I think of your betrayal

 

The word dad doesn’t mean the same

Just like the feeling of your hug doesn’t have the same effect on me

 

There’s a part of me that forgives you and is ready to accept you into my life again

It’s clouded by memories from the past

But it’s not true

That person who raised me was a lie

 

You carry this burden of hiding who you are,

for me and my sister

Thank you for your consideration

But it didn’t help at all.

 

Be who you are.
