A Life Worth Chasing

Ninety-Seven percent of a life I desperately want to live.
The other Three percent hangs by a thread-
Nagging in the back of my brain.
I want to be free of the fear in my heart..
The lie I live every day.
But what if the lie is a lie?
What would that make me?
A liar.
Hypocrite.
Fake.
All the things that represent
The one person that I never want to become.
I would do anything to keep from turning into
My Mother.

I'd even admit that I'm
GAY..

Wow! Powerful. I think a lot of kids can relate. You might consider publishing some of your vignettes as well.
