Nobody understood me before.

Awkward. Child. Girl.

Nobody understands me now.

Awkward. Teen. Boy.

Nobody will ever understand me.

Awkward. Adult. Man.

Some people think I am daring.

Some people think I am courageous.

Some peope think I am bold.

Some people think I am brave.

On the other hand.

Some people think I am an abomination.

Some people think I am incoherent.

Some people think I am insane.

Some people think I am monster.

I am far from a monster though.

I am a human being.

I deserve be treated like any other person.

I do not ask for much from others.

All I ask for is respect.

People can say what they want to say.

People can hear what they want to hear.

People can see what they want to see.

People can think what they want to think.

It will not change who I am.

I am the man who can not be moved.

I am free to be who I want to be.

I am who I am.

I am trans.
