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

Cuckoo's Nest

Most people would call me crazy for wanting to go to the “cuckoo's nest” Outpatient therapy isn’t the most greatly looked upon thing by society. I’d been before and it felt like being run over by the
