USE "GOODBYE50" FOR 50% OFF EVERYTHING

"slowly becoming"

 

at this point in my life

 

i realize why i hate a body like mine

 

i do not hate every inch of it,

 

just my arms, 

 

my hands,

 

my chest,

 

my figure.

 

i believe that i was born into the wrong body

 

and now all i can do is

 

find a way to do something about it.

 

at this point in my life 

 

i know i have had so many distractions occur

 

and when i am alone and aware,

 

i see everything that should not be there.

 

every day i walk on the street, i hear:

 

"girl"

 

"young lady!"

 

i don't know why,

 

but these words make me feel so small. 

 

every day i shrink

 

and each day that i shrink

 

i conform to these words

 

sometimes i feel that i should be a girl 

 

for a passerby's comfort

 

and i know the way i dress,

 

present,

 

and talk 

 

is seen as feminine

 

but i know that is not my truth.

 

i know that my body is just a canvas,

 

i can mold it to a design,

 

the way i want it to be

 

i know that i can become

 

immaterial.
