Topic: Father (as in paternal parent, not God) (04/10/08)

TITLE: It's Tubular

Floating, floating, wanting to be set free.
I'm only a dot you can barely see.

I know in time the Light I will see.
But, for now I'm only a test tube baby.

Will someone go to a court of law?
While they wait for me to thaw?

A loving Father's arms will I ever know?
Or, is that somewhere I can never go?

Will my Father experience real Fatherhood?
I promise I will be really, really good.

I bet my Father will have eyes of blue.
Mom may not even know him, do you?

Two Moms or two Dads, only time will tell
I just don't want them to go to hell.

I'm sure God is watching over me.
Only He knows what is meant to be.

So, if they choose this tube to flush.
I'm sure they will keep it all hush, hush.

When judgment day comes what excuse will they use?
That the egg and the sperm just did not fuse?

Being a Dad is not for me now.
It does not matter the why or the how.

My Heavenly Father really knows what is best.
For those who made me this is a real test.

Perhaps you will remember me in prayer.
Then God will hear from Heaven and take me there.

Pray for my Mother and Father, too.
I am so blessed to have someone like you.

You've come at this from a completely different angle. I like your creativity in thought. These lines really shame our societal values, "So, if they choose this tube to flush. -- I'm sure they will keep it all hush, hush. --
When judgment day comes what excuse will they use? -- That the egg and the sperm just did not fuse? Nice play on words with your title.

A gold star for creativity here. So many meaningful thoughts in this short piece, nice job.

Interesting take on the subject; a wry touch but insightful. Good job.

This was thought provoking and well done. Not the typical daddy route, and I'm glad!
