Part One: Zana- Letter to Mom and Dad

Dear Mom and Dad...

You probably don't understand why I'd do such a thing, do you? I'm perfect- getting straight A's and going to church every Sunday, volunteering at a soup kitchen on the weekends...

Do you even know me?

Wait- don't answer that. 

No, you don't know me. My friends know me, the school knows me... hell, complete strangers on the internet know me, but you have no clue who I am. 

I am not a perfect Christian girl, snuggling but not kissing guys, keeping my innocence safe, staying sober. Oh, I'm a virgin, but I don't snuggle with guys and- ew- I don't kiss them. I snuggle with girls. I party. I have fun at clubs on the weekends when you're asleep and think I am too. 

Mom and Dad, I don't like guys. I'm lesbian, I drink, I party, I have fun... but I believe in God, and I believe in keeping myself until marriage, and I have. 

That's not good enough for you though, is it? I am a heathen in your eyes because I will fall in love with the same sex. Well, I'm sorry, but I'm not going to hide in the closet when around you anymore... I'm not even going to be around you anymore, and I'm not telling where I'm going either.

Know this, Mom and Dad... you might hate me for how I am, but I'll always love you, because you're my parents, you raised me. I may not ever see you again, you may not ever want to see me again, but you always have my love, and along with it, the knowledge of my pain. It hurts that you'll probably tear this up in a rage, Daddy, because I'm not your perfect little girl, and Mommy, it hurts that you'll probably cry because I'm going to Hell rather than because I've run away, but I'm not sorry for who I am or who I love.

Goodbye and I love you,

Zana
