I have travelled a great distance.
Yet have so far to go.
And met with much resistance.
From those that just do not know.
I Tried to explain to educate.
But end up wasting my time.
It always ends up in debate.
With narrow brainwashed minds.
I have made mistakes along the way.
Like most everybody does.
By not being open every day.
To the ones I really love.
Because I have lived for someone else.
For way too many years.
The mistakes I made were to myself.
For not facing my worst fears.
And the person I lied to the most.
Resides within myself.
And made me wonder like a ghost.
That lived upon a shelf.
So now I tell them when I must.
So hopefully they will see.
I am the same person that they did trust.
Except now I am being me.
So no more hiding who I am.
No more living in denial.
when they say that I will be damned.
And I will turn everyone gay
I will Just force a smile and and walk away.
And hope that one day they will accept me for who I am in every little way............
Being Transgender or Gay is not a choice, being Transphobic or Homophobic is, so don't be a Twonk
