Accept Me

A poem I wrote for my mother after I came out.

I try to tell you what I feel
I try to tell you what is real
I want you to see
But you refuse to see the real me

You want me to be perfect
Not a hair out of place
I try to walk your line
But to you I’m a disgrace

Shoulders back
Stand tall
Head held high
But you refuse to see it all

Every tear that I cry
Every smile that I fake
Every word that you say
It’s a little more then I can take

I want you to see
The pain it’s causing me
To know I used to be your little girl
But now you can’t stand the sight of me

You use to believe in me
But I guess I killed all your dreams
But this is reality
And this is who I wanna be
