I will say this—

As complicated and as heartbreaking

As it was, coming out as transgender

Has essentially repaired my relationship

With both of my parents.

I no longer resent them

For not knowing me.

They no longer resent me

For lying and deceiving.

They have accepted, albeit —

Hard to stomach, hard to process

They are finally coming around

Because of my hard work and progress.

I am relieved and emboldened

That the people that made me

Are not so stupid and so stubborn

That they don’t love to see their kid flourish

The hardest part, for me

Was being a seed, and having to

Plant myself, somehow —

Without any wind, water or legs.

I guess that’s the whole “trans” part.
