I am sorry for not being the daughter you want.
I am sorry for not obeying you.
I am sorry for what I didn’t do.
I can never apologise for my honesty.
I can never apologise for my sexuality.
I can only be sorry that I turned down the LGBTI community
By falling pregnant with a guy.
I can only be sorry for choosing someone’s happiness over mine.
I can only be sorry for living a lie.
My hands are clean,
I haven’t killed anyone,
Nor have I robbed anyone.
No soul has been broken by my hands and doings.
My only sin is just to love another woman.
My only sin was to be in love with the same sex.
My only sin was to wear the rainbow flag with pride.
I am sorry I didn’t see the imperfection in the perfect Thabo.
I am sorry I couldn’t marry your righteous Cedric.
I am sorry I couldn’t allow Selby to bring in the perfectly built cows.
I can’t be sorry for choosing her over him
That she you dislike is also capable of giving you
The double and strong cows Thuso was about to bring.
Eyesights are different for a reason.
Mother my heart dances for her not him
Mother I am sorry
But mother I can never be sorry for being who I am
Mother I’m not sorry for my homosexuality…
