Perhaps my issue is at the core not even
Fat issues not even trans issues but rather just
Having issues at all.
I often feel as if I can’t even bitch
Despite being one, and transitioning through it
When will it be time for trans people
To talk about their truths as something other than
How they feel about how they look.
Each part of my transition has been
Blinded by the enormity of feeling I experience,
Never did any of this
To change the way I look, I wanted to transition
To change the world’s perception of me, as
Being perceived as a woman is not the same
As being perceived as a man.
For whatever reason, this sends some people
Into a frenzy. The ones who have experienced
The least distress, so they say
Are the most upset when I talk about
Maybe not all stories
Are yours to tell.
