Poem: This is a Broken World that I emerge into.

Before I emerged from my closet…..

I hid in shame, because they said I would be un-lovable.

I have now emerged into a world that is full of their own little secrets.

I hid in shame, because they said I would be un-lovable.

I emerge to a world that has the same shame you instilled into me.

Ξ

How is it, that you convinced me I was so different, and yet others suffer form the same abuse, the same lies, the same deceptions?

Thinking their penis too small, or their boobs not big enough.

What is it about these lies, this standard of “normal”.

This standard of beauty,

This standard of masculine?

What is a girl, what is a boy?

I hid in shame, because I was lied to, like they lied to you.

Kept out of the locker rooms.

When I find out you did not want to be in their exploited either.

And you are the “normal” one.

Ξ

I hid in shame, because I was lied to, like they lied to you.

Hiding my body, like you hid your body.

“Modesty” they called it in your case.

A “Disorder” to be hidden from this world, in mine.

Ξ

How is it you convinced me I was so different, and yet others suffer from the same

Insecurities and the same abuse, the same lies, the same deceptions?

Thinking their body too fat, or too thin, or their chest not muscular enough.

What is it about these lies, this standard of “normal”.

This standard of beauty,

This standard of masculine?

What is a girl, what is a boy?

I come to one conclusion:

This is a broken world that I emerge into.

You were lied to too.
