Y Gene

Hidden behind a mask of mascara and blush,
To not let others know is such a rush.
Behind painted nails and perfumed spray,
Doesn’t quite seem to take the pain away.

Born a lie, a gender mistake,
A simple y gene makes for a heartbreak.
confusion born from nature's faux pas,
who you are is just the luck of the draw

I'm still human it doesn't change who I am,
I am who I am I don't give a damn.
I look in the mirror and like who I see,
The beautiful woman is just inside of me.

*To those that wonder if it is me, No this poem is fiction just thought it needed to be said.

    Hola, Hi Lisa, I feel as if i need some make-up-remover... he he he! Oh! Wait, about being born a mistake what exactly do you mean? ... I mean everthing is so wrong in my life, and still i manage with every look, i have to face, with or without a clowns painted face. My looks take me no where, I think it's my tossing and turning that keeps changing everthing about the women inside of me. By the way i was kidding about the make-up-remover, i like what i see, pain or no pain. I love your mighty poem,..thank you for taking the time and making me smile with your cute comment.. always~PD

    The presence of a Y chromosome in a karyotype kept tennis pro Renee Richards out of Wimbledon competition back in the seventies. This is a fascinating write.
