Shortcut

It almost feels like cheating,

Having this hormone in me

Pumping me up.

It almost feels like cheating,

Giving me a little something to

Hope for.

It almost feels like cheating,

Especially compared to the way

I’ve been living.

It almost feels like cheating,

Being confident all because

Some needle I stabbed

in my butt.

It almost feels like cheating,

A shortcut I took to being

Someone I enjoy.

It almost feels like cheating,

But it’s not. It’s just

Who I was all along.

I would say I feel scared,

Say I feel I was pretending–

But now I’m not.

I’m not scared, I’m not lying

I’m not an imposter.

I’m just the wrong gender!

Don’t worry, it’ll all sort itself out.
