A Transgender Poem

A Transgender Poem 

As I look in the mirror, who do I see

A reflection of the woman that I want to be.

Born into a body that fights every day

To keep all of my feminine feelings at bay.


Living my life as someone I am not

Lying and cheating, this has to stop

I have to be true, hold my head high

Be who I am, no longer have to lie.


Slowly and gently I take hold of the reins

To steer myself onwards, break free from these chains.

Achieving acceptance from family and friends

Each day is a bonus as my heartache now ends.


I now look in the mirror, who do I see

The reflection of the woman I wanted to be

Comfortable in my body, happy and free

When I look in the mirror, I just see me.
