Inside the girl, I saw what shouldn’t be,
Yet there it was as clear as darkest night,
The voice that softly whispered it’s not right,
The tears I cried while yearning to be free.
Inside the girl, I saw my destiny,
All wrapped in jeans with silver buckles bright,
A vision of life that set my world alight,
One single word that spoke ‘Androgyny’.
Inside the girl, I saw another view,
A world I could begin to understand,
Although it is not what my dreams had planned,
It’s something I knew this time I must do.
A way of life I know I can enjoy,
Inside this girl, there dwells her inner boy.
