    Love is Greater

    I don’t care about your hair,
    Or that ring in your nose,
    I don’t care if you should wear,
    Those really funky clothes.

    It doesn’t bother me one bit,
    Those tattoos on your face,
    If people stare, I just don’t care,
    To me it’s no disgrace.

    You can die your hair bright red,
    Or purple, even blue,
    None of that can upset me,
    Because I do love you.

    Your friends, outrageous as they are,
    They’re all okay by me,
    Whatever you should do or say,
    I’ll never disagree.

    So pierce your ear, your lip, your brow,
    Put tattoos on your neck,
    Portray yourself the way you wish,
    And I will not object,

    If you and I can both agree,
    Then half the battle’s won,
    For all will soon be yesterday,
    And you’ll still be my son.

    Note: This is a fantasy poem.... Did not have any boys with tats, piercings and the like.

    Bear,

    Thanks for reading and responding to this poem. No, I never had a son with all that. My oldest son is 46 and he had one ear pierced, no tats or bright hair. My youngest son is 41 and he hasn't had any of that stuff. It was just a poem I felt like writing. Now, I have two grown grand children and this situation is a bit different. Again, thanks for reading it.

    Ron

    Dear Ron,

    This was lovely. I wonder how many children with expressive body decor would love to read this, and wish they had as understanding Father. Those last two lines sum it all up nicely, and will always be. Love this Ron, and thanks for sharing.

    Just a wonderful expression of what love really is. Plain and simple...one I can surely relate to easily...our children never stop being our children, no matter what they choose to do. I remember one of my sons telling me that he didn't love me anymore (after I had spanked him for doing something he needed one for at age 5) that no matter if he chose to love me or not, that i would always love him, that my love for him did not hinge on whether or not he loved me. He never told me that he did not love me anymore after that. And, yes...my sons and I are very, very close to this day.

    PaintedDiary & Benny,

    Thank you both for reading and responding to this poem. For the life of me I do not know the inspiration for this poem other than I feel an unconditional love for my sons and grandchildren and nothing they can do would stop me from loving them. My mother had this kind of love for me and I assume I got it from her. I was an extreme disappointment to her as a child growing up and was a hellion, always in trouble. She had that kind of love for me and always expressed it to me. I do have two grandchildren that are a bit into piercings and my oldest grand daughter was a bit gothic for a while. Again, thanks to both of you I appreciate you very much

    Ron
