Pride

Pride

They were born a female 

They were supposed to be

Draped in a long gown

And adorn themeselves

 with a bejeweled crown


That's what the others wanted.

They chose to keep it simple,

And follow their heart

To identity as someone they want to

Not what the society wants them to 


She was made to believe

Her prince would come.

She was made to dream of a man

But is it so wrong that she came across a woman instead?


They sneered and mocked at her

For expressing herself.

They called her names.

But it won't stop her from dreaming about her love.


He was forced to act tough

To never cry

To never express his "femininity"

And to always be enough for the right 'lady'

Or he'd never find someone.


He did find someone-

The right man for him.

It's not an act, Neither a joke

He loves him and forever will


She was supposed to

 Be the perfect "son"

She was rather forced to do so

She wasn't supposed to be a "man"


And even though she is a woman now

When she was "supposed" to be a man

That does not make her

Any less of women than others


She was supposed to "choose" one

When she liked more than one

She was supposed to love one

But ended up loving more. 


It's not "just a phase"

And she's not "confused"

It's not that "she just hasn't met the one"

She likes multiple genders and always will.
