Denial

Denial

by Patrice Farmer
You can’t exist, you just can’t…

it would mean that horrible M word created you.

What shame, what horror, what a sin…

Sin of all sins my bible says…

My preacher told me.

My parents told me.

What filthy disgusting act to create…YOU!

I glance at you but to look upon you

is a sin…

You are so strange.

How could this have happened?

Who do I blame?

You can’t exist, you can’t…

‘cause that would mean that I was wrong…
