Poem: Our Broken Intersex Community

They broke you.

They broke me.

We sit here together all broken.


We are both bleeding, and yet you attack me.


They taught us to hate ourselves.

So you attack me some more.


What else would we expect from the broken?

Yet, I refuse to fight you.


I see why you do what you do.


My eyes are wide open to this form of self-hatred and self-destruction.

I hope you awaken before it is too late…..

for all of us.
