You heaved open
a gate of shame
and risked exile

the dangerous kind or quiet,
which can be just as hard
as your mother turned pale,
love leaking out of her
as though someone being gay
can tear a hole in a heart

but I want you to know
you were brave
you were strong
you were honest

you are the one
who has battled

and all you ask of us
is the simple act
of accepting you

of seeing your light,
and your right
to love.
