Child Of God - Poem by Randy McClave

I am a child of God!
With different beliefs than my creator,
Some people call me weird, strange and odd
But, I don't care as I am still loved by my maker.
I speak to the Almighty in a prayer every night
Even after people have cursed me because I am gay,
He doesn't care about that, or even if I am wrong or right
And I thank him for his love every day.
He and not those hypocrites was the one that created me
With my gender and brain and my own pain and aches,
I love him, and I know that he truly loves and accepts me
And I know that God doesn't ever make any mistakes.
I obey each one of his Ten Commandments
As every proclaiming Christian should always do,
To each and every one of them I can prove my innocence
But, I am hated because to another man I said, 'I love you'.
All sins are they not all equal
Not one is unforgivable or any greater than the other,
I too have a caring and forgiving everlasting soul
So, why am I judged and hated, is it because I love my brother.
Like any child I will always listen to and will obey my father
And I know God's love for his children it is not flawed,
But, many times I know that I have erred and that I am a bother.
I am a child of God!
