"Poetry is thoughts that breathe, and words that burn. "
Thomas Gray

She watched as her parents walked away,
Her mother to the east,
Her father to the west.
Every so often they'd turn and wave,
Re-opening the wound they created,
When they decided to walk the other way.
The further they walk,
The less she remembers of them,
The more she misses them,
The more she feels the hole in her heart.
One final time they turn to wave,
They've reached the horizon,
They've finally escaped.
She pondered the reason for that last goodbye,
Until a cloud of realization,
Darkened her mind.
They were selfish,
They couldn't stand the guilt,
A clear conscious mattered more to them,
Than their 14 year old daughter,
Who still cries in the middle of the night.
Their daughter,
The one who tore them apart.

Sometimes we look at gay being a bigger sin than being proud or not telling the truth. I don't think God categorizes sins. ~Joel Osteen
