Both judge and jury because of your failure to recognize that happiness can live between two people who come from very different places?
Your eyes roll and teeth clench with fury as thoughts swirl trying to comprehend exactly WHY THEY ARE ONE and so you ask, “What was HE thinking or what was SHE thinking and how will the rest of the world accept this union, let alone treat OUR family?”
These thoughts carry you to sleep at night as they transform your dreams filling you with a constant reminder that tomorrow will be no different from yesterday; now awake to that cold sweat and bear witness to born reality that LOVE knows nothing of race, color nor creed.
Love does not feel a burning desire to justify for acceptance. Do not confuse yourself and think for even a second that love needs an excuse to BLEND BEAUTIFUL and now look at that child or those children, YOUR Grandchild or children that you so boldly given names of disgust towards out of fear and true lack of knowledge.
Are you aware that you reside in a world forever changing with an upbringing from a past so misguided that YOU have clearly lost your way?
So now you stand firm towards a belief that someone different from your reflection will taint the lifestyle of your daughter or son?
The pacing back and forth trying to understand where you went wrong, well that is mere comedy; shall we dissect?
Do you not , “Change your clothes?”
Do you not , “Change your care provider?”
Do you not , “Change the oil in your vehicles?”
Do you not , “Change TV channels and Radio Stations?”
Do you not, “Change your occupation?”
Do you not, “Change your mind every so often?”
Changing your perception allows you to STOP living life in just black and white; while allowing you to experience LIFE IN COLOR one day at a time.
Remember, you can only hold your breath (hoping to tear LOVE apart) for so long before your body forces you to breathe and accept LOVE for what it genuinely remains.
