Two Mothers: A poem by Daughter for her Alzheimer's suffering Mother

I had two mothers...
Two mothers I claim.
Two different people ..
Yet with the same name.

Two separate women ...
Diverse by design.
But I loved them both
Because they were both mine.

The first was the mother
who carried me here
Gave birth and nurtured and
launched my career.

She was the one whose features I bear.
Complete with the facial expression I wear.

She gave me some music which follows me yet.
Along with examples in the lafe that she set.

Then as I got older she some younger grew.
And we'd laugh as just mothers and daughter do.

As quickly she changed and turned to the other.
A stranger who dressed in the clothes of my mother.

Oh she looked the same at least at arms length
But she was the child now and I was her strength.

We'd come full circle we women three.
My mother the first, the second and me.

And if my own children should come to a day
When a new mother comes and the old goes away
I'd ask of them nothing that I didn't do
Love both of your mothers as both have loved you.

Every child needs both sperm (from father) and ovary (from mother) to be conceived - this is basic Biology 101. To claim that a child has "two moms" is a lie. Every child has both a father and a mother in order to exist....hence, all that same sex parents are doing is ignoring one of the parents and adding a step-parent in place. So the "two moms" family is actually one biological dad (who is being ignored) +1 biological mom and 1 step-mom. Likewise, the "two dads" family is actually one biological mom (who is being ignored) + one biological dad + one step-dad. The idea that there are only "two moms" family or "two dads" family is a lie and if it were true, then no children would exist and so these same sex couples would NEVER be parents. The social engineering of gay culture in our western societies is why the most basic fact of life (ie. that a child needs both a father and a mother to exist) is being ignored and in it's place is the illusion that same sex parents can be the same as opposite sex parents - no such thing can happen and it is a lie to make out that it can. A lot more could be said about the other requirements that children need to have both the father AND mother inputs into their lives as they are growing up....but same sex parents are denying children such inputs AND denying children a basic human right to have a father and a mother.....WHY?....simply to make homosexuality look normal and acceptable when nothing could be further from the truth.
