Queer Poem

But the truth

Continues to change

Day by day,

Each and every time I reflect on my identity.

From sophomore year to now, I’ve

Gotten so far in navigating

How

I can truly be myself. It’s

Just hard to

Keep track of all the changes.

Letting

Myself come out to me and others was

Not easy, but

Obtaining that skill

Pushed me to be more confident. I am

Queer;

Respect me

So I know you care. I am

Trans;

Undo your internalized

Visions of

What makes a man and a woman.

X marks the spot where

You start showing equal respect for her, him, them, and

Zir.
