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.
