And I will try to love you now, my child
For, like the others, I rejected who you were
I let you struggle for your life
Sat idly by
And watched you in your pain.

I could not join you, ugly boy,
For like the others, I found you disgusting
A thing for hiding deep away

And yet you had to live
To go outside
To play
To be

So strange to be so completely rejected by yourself at such an early age.

And yet, you dared to be
Dared to carve a niche out for yourself
Dared to have a life
A lonely life where no one came
That no one knew
A life of who you really were
And you were only nine or ten.

And good already then at life's charade.

Good at being just the perfect child
Not knowing that you really weren't
That you were being someone else
Imperfect in perfection
For the child you were did not exist
Not in that form

And I, like them, rejected you.
Why would I not?
They were adult
They were the wise
They were my parents for God's sake
They'd have known if I were fit to live

But you, you made it
As the perfect son
Though you were fat
Disguised as male, but only just
And good as gold most times at least

The perfect child, a halo 'round your head

I hated you
Us both
But it's so hard to leave yourself and go be someone else
Someone who runs
Who hits the ball
And doesn't throw the damn thing like a girl
Who wears pants with a bigger number on the inseam than the waist
I would have been one in an instant

But wasn't

Not sorry for myself
Just trapped
Born as someone no one would ever want to be
But I was him
Had to be him

And so, I made the best of it
I had a sense of humor, after all
And I was smart
And I was nice
And kind

Nice and kind and ugly come together in a package, do they not?

And here I am at 61, still dealing with my disdain for you
I know you need my love
My acceptance
Know we need to reconcile before we can go on
But somehow I can't do it
The snow job so complete, that even now I'd probably do the same stuff all again.

I know they're not my fault, the things they did
The sexual things

But still I think I caused them not to love me
Still I think they couldn't love a little sissy boy who was so fat
How could they, when I couldn't love myself?

Oh, sissy boy, why can't I love you now?
Why can't I take you to my heart and tell you that I love you, make it better
Wash it all away?

The truth is, I don't hate you
I feel sorry for your pain
But me, I left you long ago
Left you all alone and took myself away
And watched you struggle through your life, from deep inside

For they rejected you
And with good reason, so I thought
And so did I

And now, no matter how I try, I cannot get to you to take you back again.

I'm healing now, and I wasn't sure I would.

It wasn't your fault that the separation between you and Little Bobby occurred the way it did. That has happened to so many of us. I know you are having trouble getting back in contact, but the hard fact is we can't rush such things.

Just hang in there, and know that we are with you.

Much love,

Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking my freedom highway.
Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me.
