A poem about coming out as genderqueer.

reborn

i turn pages of an old notebook,

i turn pages of an old notebook, dead name written in dead girl's handwriting

i turn pages of an old notebook, dead name written in dead girl's handwriting she was dead then too-

i turn pages of an old notebook, dead name written in dead girl's handwriting she was dead then too- empty skin i hid in

i turn pages of an old notebook, dead name written in dead girl's handwriting she was dead then too- empty skin i hid in rotting flesh, dulled eyes

i turn pages of an old notebook, dead name written in dead girl's handwriting she was dead then too- empty skin i hid in rotting flesh, dulled eyes dead skin peels away

reborn.

i ripped along carefully sewn seams:

i ripped along carefully sewn seams: lies, every stitch a lie

i ripped along carefully sewn seams: lies, every stitch a lie fake skin pulled to hide what i thought horrific.

only when i stood free of the anchor you gave me,

only when i stood free of the anchor you gave me, i stood in the light and found it did not burn.

i stood, and i shined.
