My Gender It’s Female

In my new city
I don’t even know
Where the village is
Where the village is

‘Cause in the village
People think gender it’s
All just very preformative
But it’s rather biological

And I don’t even
Wanna ever know where
The village is located
The village is located

‘Cause in the village
People think gender it’s
All a social construct
But it’s rather biological

I’ve know since 7
For sure I’m not
I’m not a boy
I’m not a boy

But if gender was
Actually just very preformative
Then I’d be male
Then I’d be male

I’ve known since 14
For sure I’m definitely
I’m definitely a girl
I’m definitely a girl

But if gender was
Actually a social construct
Then I’d be male
Then I’d be male

But my body including
My mind it’s always
Been telling me that
My gender is female

So at least for
For me my gender
My gender it’s female
My gender it’s female

That Woman She Is Authentically Me

I’m afraid people will see my
Face and how it gives away
The fact I’m not woman enough

I’m afraid people will see my
Breasts and how they give away
The fact I’m not woman enough

I’m afraid people will hear my
Voice and how it gives away
The fact I’m not woman enough

I’m afraid people will fixate on
My shoulders and how they reveal
The fact I’m not woman enough

But truth is lots of people
They see me as the woman
I’m becoming and meant to be

Every single day I’m becoming more
The woman I’m meant to be
And that woman is authentically me

That woman she is authentically me

I’m More Like The Other Girls

In junior kindergarten I played like
I played like the other girls
Feeding, holding, and rocking a doll
Still unaware that I’d someday soon
Be wishing I’d the needed courage
To say I’m more like them
And I’m less like the boys
‘Cause they’d tell me boys don’t
Play with dolls and the like

In late elementary school I watched
The other girls on the playground
Wishing I’d the needed courage to
Say I’m more like them and
That I’m less like the boys
Yes I should’ve been playing skipping
Instead of playing touch football and
At times walking around all alone
With just my walkman for company

In high school I did watch
I watched the other girls talking
About their changing bodies, futures and
Wishing I’d the needed courage to
Say I’m more like them and
That I’m less like the boys
And that I should be playing
Soccer on the girls team instead
Of being on the boys team

If the needed courage had come
From inside me I’d have developed
More like the other girls and
Not so much like the boys and
My life would be easier and
Not as hard as its been

In junior kindergarten I played like
I played like the other girls
Feeding, holding, and rocking a doll

Testosterone Is My Nemesis

Testosterone is my nemesis
‘Cause my mind says
I’m a female human
And testosterone says well
When I’m through your
Body will say differently
But thankfully I can
Take tablets to keep
Testosterone away and reverse
Some of its effects

Testosterone is my nemesis
‘Cause my mind says
I’m a female human
And testosterone says well
When I’m through your
Body will say differently
But thankfully I can
Have surgery to knock
Testosterone out and correct
Some of its effects

Testosterone is my nemesis

(When You Go Correct) The Hormones In Your Body

When you go correct the hormones in your body
There’ll be things you now can’t go do and
They’ll be the things that even before you wouldn’t
You most certainly wouldn’t have wanted to go do

When you go correct the hormones in your body
There’ll be things you now can go do and
They’ll be the things that if before you could’ve
You most certainly would have wanted to go do

You never wanted the ability to grow a beard
But you had it in too many spades full
You wished you could’ve been able to grow breasts
But you lacked that ability so very much completely

When you go correct the hormones in your body
You’ll see on your body, feel in your head
Changes that took a long time coming to you
Changes that took too long to come to you

When you go correct the hormones in your body
You’ll end up laughing and crying so much and
Asking God why I didn’t go do this sooner
But mostly you’ll be thankful you took the plunge

A Woman

You were inside of my head
On the day I was born
And since then you have always
Always been inside of my head
Yeah you have always been better
Then what they see on me

I want them to see you
You on the outside of me
‘Cause you are still inside
Inside my head, inside of my head
You have always been inside of
You are inside of my head

You are the woman inside of
Inside of my head is a
A woman who is you and
You are totally me and
I want you on the outside
On the outside of me

You were inside of my head
On the day I was born
And since then you have always
Always been inside of my head
Inside my head, inside of my head
You are inside of my head

I Don’t Have A Girl

I don’t have a girl
Who is looking back from
The big floor length mirror
Who is looking back from
The embrace of my arms

I don’t have a girl
‘Cause then I never said
Who I truly was inside
‘Cause yet I haven’t said
What I need to hold

I Don’t have a girl
‘Cause I’m still trying to
Be more truly completely me
‘Cause I’m still needing to
Be more truly completely me

When I’m really loving me
I’ll be the girl in
The big floor length mirror
I’ll get a girl in
The embrace of my arms

I don’t have a girl
Who is looking back from
The big floor length mirror
Who is looking back from
The embrace of my arms

This Was Hard For Me To Tell

I have been staying up real late
Trying to tell you who I am
But it is not coming out right
So I will just say it here
Here right in this poem for you
If you have questions do ask them
This is hard for me to tell

This is hard for me to tell
So I will wast no more time
I will just come out with it
I feel that I have no congruence
My sex is different from my gender
I was born with male sex parts
This is hard for me to tell

Well it has not been that easy
Hearing what a man should be, do
I am not a man, never was
And I made a pretty silly boy
Yeah you probably figured it out now
Yeah I identify as being transgender female
This is hard for me to tell

This is hard for me to tell
So I will wast no more time
I will just come out with it
Please use the female pronouns for me
‘Cause I am no ones son but
Rather I am someone’s daughter, someone’s sister
This is hard for me to tell

Yeah you probably figured it out now
Yeah I identify as being transgender female
If you have questions do ask them
‘Cause I would appreciate if you used
The female pronouns for me and made
An effort to understand and except me
This is hard for me to tell

This was hard for me to tell

You Might Have Called Me Your…

You might have called me
Your son or your bother
Or a crazy guy friend
But I hate to brake
Brake it to you now
I only was your child
Or only was your sibling
Or only your crazy friend
But I wish that I
I could have been your
Your daughter or your sister
Or your crazy female friend
But maybe I can still become
Your daughter or your sister
Or your crazy female friend
