What Makes You?

Transgender Poem

Flower boy

“What are little girls made of?

Sugar and spice And everything nice That's what little girls are made of”

I wasn’t made out of that.

I wasn’t sugar and spice

I wasn’t rainbows and butterflies

I wasn’t pink.

I wasn’t Cinderella waiting for a Prince Charming

I am Prince Charming.

I am the rain that washed away the rainbow, I am the net that caught the butterflies.

I am blue.

I am snips and snails and doggy tails.

I am not the daughter you gave birth to, but rather the son that you raised.

Why can’t you just accept that?
