Dear a mother and a father

Love a son, Love a son
Love a son forever
Says the father.
Love a son, Love a son
Love a son forever
Says the mother.

Oh the hypocrisy!
Where would we be without?
Stronger, weaker, dumber, smarter
Stand tall they say. But for how long?
Love a son they say.

It’s ours to question a Mother’s love,
It’s ours to question a Father’s love.
They had blunder’d. We had not.
We had done nothing. They everything.
Love a son they say.

No one can judge. No one can criticise.
They can think. But we know
We stand tall and unafraid.
Love a son they say.

We put our trust in friends
For without we stand for nothing.
Greater hath no man than a man
who lay down his life for a friend.
Love a son they say.

Our Carers try to heal our wounds,
But social workers are no mothers.
We will all wish for that moment in time
But we move forward and stand with
Our new family
Love a son they say.

Love a son they scream!
We feel lost. We feel found.
We feel surrounded, all the
While we stand taller
Love a son they whimper.
