I have a confession
You may not like
I have a confession
That might make us fight
But I can no longer play pretend
And I want you to know who I really am

Mom I know you want the best for me
I need this confession to set me free
From living my life as a lie
In fears you no longer be by my side

So here it goes I will say...
...Mom I'm gay
And I hope you can accept me anyways

------- Author's Notes -------

I wrote this poem for my mom but I am scared to let her know in fears of losing my friendship with her. So I'm not sure what to do comments on poem and suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Truth is best

I came out to my mom when i was 17, she was upset at first, but you must remember, your mom loves YOU as a person, for everything you are.. honesty is best.. be your own person and be happy.

If your friendship is so strong between you, then there will be nothing to get in the way. As long as your true to yourself, people will support you and be there for you. Shine with confidence, and never hide who you are! Wishing you luck, although you won't need it my friend,

Faith ,

as a mum myself, there is nothin' that can break the bond and friendship between a parent and their child biological or other..especially a mum.she may possibly have a moment , but most certain it will not last long, because you are a miracle to her and you are alive! only ignorance can interfere, we all learn to accept one another no matter what before and durin' birth. her love for you will not lock up, have "Faith" Faith, there's gotta be a great birth story behind your name..we are all there in spirit for you..

you should put your fears aside and tell her because it could bring you closer
