Hope, Human Rights, Poems

Poem: Mom, please don’t let them kill me.

I was once born an

innocent little boy

I was reaching out to you with 

my heart and soul

I begged please don’t let me go

Nights were long and lonely

*

Yet, each day

as a girl,

they took hold of my hand

*

As a boy, I could not

help you understand

you refused to see me

Won’t you please,

give me love?

*

I was invisible to you

so I had to share that love

with the girl you made me be

because they told you I could not exist.

*

No one to help me cope

The government, doctors, and councilors

against me

with such a heavy load

I was so little facing the burden of

eugenics

*

as they killed me

I became the living dead

mom, you could not see

as you called me Tony

with an i

*

Yet, to this day

a survivor of such horrors

a living nightmare

still

trying to touch and reach you with

my heart and soul

*

Won’t you please,

give me love

Give me life.

Don’t kill us before we are even born


I beg you

to never do this to another little

boy

*

This is our world too

Let me drop this heavy load

now that I am a

man

*

Take hold of my hand,

again

As you listen to our words you can 

now understand

it is eugenics

*

Give me hope

Help me cope

it was never my

heavy load

*

Trying to reach you with

my heart and soul

*

People in power and control

Won’t you

end this

atrocity?
