Abandonment Poem by Teens

Mom Won't Accept Gay Child

I wrote this poem one day after me and my mom got into a really big fight, and she began to bring things up. My mother doesn't like the fact that I'm gay, she kicked me out when she found out, I really wish she could see how much she is hurting me. We use to be really close, now we hardly talk.

Hey Jessica. I understand that it must be hard having to deal with a mother who doesn’t understand how you feel. It is so unfortunate that LGBT people face these kinds of hardships. I can't...

Dear Mom

Published: June 2012

This pain I feel inside I can no longer hide.
Because of you I just wanna die,
you told me you would always be here and never let me fall
why did you lie,
you denied me just because I was who I wanted to be,
I couldn't be happy,
I felt like nothing.
Remember when you said you wished I was dead,
I still keep that memory in my head,
you put me out on the streets with nothing,
you caused so much hate in me
I'm not the person who I use to be,
you changed me,
you turned the family against me,
I wish you could see how much I'm suffering,
how much I feel lonely
I wish I could be somebody important to you,
but I know that wish would never come true.

I used to always feel that way when if first came out to my mom about me being bisexual. She disregarded how I felt and she wouldn't listen to me when I tried having girlfriends. She denied me any affection. luckily I didn't get kicked out, but that's one of the reasons why I'm in a residential now and have been in and out of treatment since January 3 2011. I just hope that you can continue to write and be able to express your feelings through poetry. I know how much it helps because I write poetry myself.

Hey Jessica. I understand that it must be hard having to deal with a mother who doesn’t understand how you feel. It is so unfortunate that LGBT people face these kinds of hardships. I can't promise it will get better, but I would say to continue being strong and I am here for you.
