Living Truth

Being trans so far

Has been challenging

But the most surprising part

Of this whole journey

Is how brutally honest it feels

To come out to people

You’d think that

Telling other people

You’re a man when you have

Tits and no dick would feel

Wrong, somehow— but

Saying that I am a woman

Is a much bigger lie with

Much worse adverse effects

For everyone, not just me

As the guy who was born on

The wrong side of the fence

My trans identity isn’t deceptive—

It’s brutally honest, to tell you that I am

A woman would be a lie

That can’t pass any test, let alone

The test of living
