An Anonymous Poem, From a Parent of an Intersex Child: She Had No Voice

They said we need to take a second look
They said he needs to be fixed
She had no voice
They said you now have a beautiful boy
They misplaced the words that would open our eyes
She had no voice
They washed their hands clean and sent us on our way
The letter came and shed light on our anomaly
She was never given a choice
He blossomed into a person
His voice began to surface
He said I’m a person please call me she
They broke our trust
They stole a choice
She has a voice
By The Anonymous Parent of an Intersex Child
