Dear Dad, A Letter From Your Son
You have missed a lot.
You missed me growing into a man.
You are who you were not.
You missed me finally being happy.
And I guess I just wanted to say
(And I’m not being sappy.)
That this is goodbye.
I don’t care what you think of me.
I don’t need your approval anymore
But what you can’t see
Is that I miss you a lot.
You tell me you love me
but still pray that I will change.
I tell you this is who I need to be
and pray that you will love me.
I wish it didn’t have to be this way
but here we are.
I don’t have anything else to say.
Your Transgender Son
