(I Am Being) More Authentically Me

Here at this stage and age of my life
I am not what I thought I would be
But at least I am not being inauthentic anymore
I am, every day, being more authentically me
But still sometimes, I get self-conscious about my body
When I am like this it messes with my mind
And it leaves me in a state of sadness
A state of self-critical sadness that brings me down
But luckily this state it does not last long
And I get to be again, more authentically me
Here at this stage and age of my life
I am not what I thought I would be
But at least I am not being inauthentic anymore
I am, every day, being more authentically me
I am being more authentically me, more authentically me

(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 thing 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 thing 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

You Struggle For Acceptance Into Appropriate Places

Being authentic it takes much work
And being sincere is achieved hardly
But being not yourself is simple

Being not yourself is simple it
Takes none of what you got
But being what your society wants

Take the easy way and you
Are miserable but mostly you don’t
Struggle for acceptance into appropriate places

Being inauthentic it takes no work
And being insincere is achieved easily
But being truly yourself is hard

Being truly yourself is hard it
Takes all you got to fight
What your society wants you being

Take the hard way and you
Are happy some but mostly you
Struggle for acceptance into appropriate places

You struggle for acceptance into appropriate places

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

Go And Be Yourself (This Thing Needs Doing)

Go and be yourself
This is so hard
Harder then it sounds
This thing needs doing

You’ll find the reasons
To not be yourself
And instead go hideaway
Again from the world

Go and be yourself
This is so hard
Harder then it sounds
This thing needs doing

Oh when you tell
Someone can begin loving
Finally your true self
This thing needs doing

Go and be yourself
This is so hard
Harder then it sounds
This thing needs doing

It’ll take only one
Step at a time
To start to be
And to share yourself

Go and be yourself
This is so hard
Harder then it sounds
This thing needs doing

Go and be yourself
This is so hard
Harder then it sounds
This thing needs doing

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

Courage Is Slow

Courage is slow
It is go do one thing
But not all at ones rather
Start with one step then another
To take you away from here
And closer to being more whole

In your past
You did not get to be
Seen as you feel you are
Being who you are is crucial
For you to be whole and
Able to give all you have

Courage is slow
But it is crucial if you
Are to make your world better
For you and those around you
Need what you have to give
To them with your own life

In your past
You did not get to be
Seen as you feel you are
Being who you are is crucial

Courage is slow
But with it your past will
Be just that not your future
It looks to be shining brightly

I Wanted All Of Me

I wanted all of me
To be seen and known
So I went showed up
I went and showed up

I let all me out
I didn’t hide one bit
Some didn’t like it much
Must embraced me fully finely

It was so vary wonderful
I cried tears of joy
And laughed harder then ever
Then I’d ever don before

I wanted all of me
To be seen and known
So I went showed up
I went and showed up

I let all me out
I didn’t hide one bit
