Just For Today

Just for today, I'd like to not feel I like have to fight for my kid

or that I have to convince people that he DOES belong.

Just for today, I'd like to not have a lump in my throat

or a huge knot in my stomach.

Just for today, I'd like there to be no phonecalls or emails

or no need to explain to people the same things over and over and over.

Just for today, I'd like to not have to champion my son

or to feel that if I don't speak up, my son and others like him, 

will be bullied and hurt by the people who are supposed to help them.

Just for today I'd like the world not to be a scary

and potentially dangerous place for my son.

Just for today I wish people could just do the right thing

because it's the right thing to do.
