I was robbed

Society took it away from me

The years of youth marred and changed

The pressure to be something you don’t understand

The requirements of society

I won’t ever know what it’s like to be a little girl

To learn from the ways of life from her mother and

Getting attached to a cheesy princess dress

Then ruining it with mud and bugs in the garden

I won’t ever know what it’s like to be a preteen girl

Finding your girlfriends, hiding away from teachers view

Giggling, gabbing, laughing, and crying

figuring out how to be the friend you want to be

I won’t ever know what it’s like to be a teenage girl

Gossip, Boys, Sleepovers, Makeup, Crying, Compassion

Growing in ways that are unexpected

Fighting and finding a way

Instead, I was given my allotment

A tool which compels you to use it

The Sword of Conquest

The Pen of Knowledge

The Thing that Sets Us Apart

Society Told Me:

“This is my rifle. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My rifle is my best friend. It is my life. I must

master it as I must master my life. My rifle, without me, is useless. Without my rifle, I am useless.”

Society Told Me:

God gave me this body; I must treat it with respect.

Altering your body is wrong in the eyes of the Lord.

God made you in their image so that I am perfect the way I am

Society Told Me:

I am mentally ill

It’s not possible to transition

What I want only lives in fantasy

Society Told Me:

That I make people uncomfortable

That I am a SIN

Others fear me

I am dangerous

That I am not welcome

I told myself that I couldn’t ever

That my allotment meant I was destined to live out the role society told me

That it was not possible

Society Took 20 Years From Me
