asked

 

he never asked for this

as his dad mocked him on the sidewalk
talking loud and ugly without words
for his behaviors and interests,
the dad knew …

the true meaning
of what his dads gestures meant
about him were unknown at the time
but, the child knew …

so he lived a life
feeling small, ashamed, unaccepted, alone
and never good enough inside …
the gay son knew …

he never asked for this life.
