Be Yourself

for years

trying to fit in

with whatever you wanted me to be

i would have become anything

anyone

you wanted

just to be loved

accepted

i am done with that

i am who i am

love me

or

leave me

my children

5 years and 10  months

he wants to be a farmer

teacher

pilot

engineer

he wants to marry a vampire

not get married

have twenty children

have no children

we have talked about

homosexuality

single parenting

responsibilities

drugs

alcohol

addictions

recovery

he is 5

and he is a lot more mature than a lot of adults i know

he can be whomever he chooses to be

she can be whomever she chooses to be

as a mother

as a teacher

i have no right to determine who my children will or will not become or do

they

and only they

have that right

all i can do is guide them the best i can

and pray for them every day

and love them unconditionally

no

matter

what
