I just came out to my mom, crying

gaybutsad's picture

Well I called my mom on the phone while she was at work. Told her I had to tell her something. I asked her if she knew what I was gonna tell her. She didn't say anything then said no. Asked if I was commit suicide or if I'm depressed at all. I told her no and it's not bad. Well obviously I am depressed but I didn't wanna ge ther started. We kept arguing because she kept thinkins it was bad. I told her to come home. When she did about 5 minutes ago I told her to read this poem.
I asked her if she knew how to croll and everything (frmo the past when i thoguht her how to use computers) she said yes.
Well this is the poem i let her read

"What would you do?

What would you say?

If I were to tell you the truth,

would you turn and walk away?

Would you look at me in shame
and never smile?

Would you look at me in pain
and cry for a long while?

Could you still love me the same,
the way you did before, or would it cause
you much pain to hold me once more?

What can I say?

What can I do?

I wouldn't turn away if this was you.

What do you want me to say?

What do you want me to do?

To keep on crying and hiding

about what is true.

I can't do this anymore can't

you see?

I've been living a lie, I've got to

be me.

So please understand me

and what I'm about to say.

I havn't changed in any way.

I just want you to know that

I am gay.

For Mom"
Poem by- DrkNight2 (thats his aim)

She looked at me with the brightest smile i have EVER seen. She told me shoe loved me and nothing is wrong with it. She started laughing and sai dthere was nothing tobe ashamed of. She hugged me while i cried on her. She didn't spare one tear. My mother doesn't cry that much anymore. Only when my father used to beat her 5years ago. Well anyways I came out to her, it's a great feeling. Better than making love. I hope you all enjoy, I'm still shocked since its only been a couple minutes since it's happened. She went back to work so I'm home alone again. Well if anyone wants to talk or want to know more about this IM me emoemoemoboyscry

Wow, thats WONDERFUL your mom

Wow, thats WONDERFUL your mom had such a great reaction. Coming out is probably the scaryest thing you can ever do, even if you suspect the reaction will be good its still tough. You got guts.

Good For You!

You should be very proud of yourself for making that leap! I'm so glad everything turned out okay, kinda makes the hours of worry and thinking up worse case scenarios seem silly huh? Or at least that was how it was for me... That poem is awesome, definitely worth posting in the poetry section of this site. I'm sure it could do the rest of us some good someday too. If I ever come out to my best friend, I would sure use it. So, anyways, thanks for sharing. I'm glad the pain is finally over and there's no more secrets between you two. With any luck, this'll only bring you closer together.

good idea

I think that poem was a really good poem and you are very lucky that she took it so well. with me 3 years ago i told them and they threatended to kill me but now they believe that i am straight witch i am not. but enough about me. I think that you are very lucky and that i hope that you have a great life now that it is a little bit more easier. if you want to talk please e-mail me at teenkillernot@mail.com.
