So mum I have a question
I'm not sure you want to hear
But I need to know the answer
And please let it be sincere

I used to believe your tales
But now they’re growing sheer
At first I blamed myself
Maybe I wasn’t being clear?

But then I’d rephrase the question
In attempt to break your frontier
But you’d just rearrange the lie
In hope I wouldn’t persevere

So mum now I’ll ask the question
Please don’t be burdened by your fear
But is it true that my real father
Is not the same man who’s standing here?

What a impression this leaves on my heart! How many people do not know their roots?  I knew of mine, but from a distance. I recall the questions I had vividly.  It's such a hard question for a parent to face when it's been shelved for the life of a child. How necessary to be as honest as possible...and remain protective, too, sometimes.  ~KL
