They Call Me

They call me she, they call me her, they call me a name which i do not prefer.


They call me a girl, they call me "young lady" when in truth that is pure insanity.


I want to scream "Thats not right! Im not a girl! Come on people!" 


But I dont have the courage.


I reherase in my head what should be said, but it never comes out right!

They should call me he, and him.

They should call me the name i pick.

They should call me a boy, and young man.


But they dont, and they wont, because they dont understand.
