my gypsy baby, life...
When Gypsy baby told us she was gay,
I have shared before, It did not change my love for her
in any way, if anything, it made me more protective of her.
I cried when I was alone and I cried with KD.
Not because of embarrassment or wanting her not to be gay.
I was not surprised by her news, I had thought the same
in her growing up years.
It was more because I didn't want the world to treat her
wrongly, I didn't want her to have to go through the
struggles gay people have to go through.
Who wants that for their baby girl?
When I shared this with her, in her tough gypsy way,
"Mom when did I give a f?#$k what the world thought of me?"
and that sentence made it better for me.
Yet, I am her Mother, and I know even through that
tough skin, she hurts sometimes.
Like when people try and say she has a choice.
Or when people quote the Bible to her or myself.
Proud, is what I am of her, like when she says to me,
"Yeah Mom all those who quote the Bible, 'man shall not
lay with man' but they leave out the part that we should not
eat shellfish, you don't see no people down the bayou giving
up their crawfish during lent"
Oh she teaches me so much my gypsy baby.
I am her Mother though, I know there are still those times
when the world is cruel and she cries.
I got a text from her the other night, late
"I HATE PEOPLE"
Why is that baby girl? I ask
"SOME STUPID ASSHOLES AT WALMART
LIKE HARASSED US. ASKED US IF WE WERE GAY.
THEN IF WE WANTED TO HAVE A THREE SOME.
LIKE WHO THE F*&>K SAYS THAT TO A STRANGER?"
What does a mother answer?
"Assholes, the world is full of them."
"I WAS SO PISSED I ALMOST SNAPPED. I GOT
SO MAD I CRIED."
Now there is something you need to know about my gypsy baby.
She rarely cries and if she does it usually is because
she was very angry or very hurt.
When this Momma hears her baby cried I want to hurt someone.
It got me thinking, like no one would ever ask that
to a perfect stranger? Why are the gay community treated like
this when straight people would never be.
I can't protect her from these embosils I can only
let her know I love her no matter what.
People, I ask, don't judge, remember not to cast the first stone,
when you point one finger, there are three more pointing towards you.
My gypsy baby, myself, we will work hard to
change the mind set of the world, one mind and one
heart at a time.
