Know you not, that I live in pain? With features that drives me insane, No matter, how much I try in vain, I am a girl in a body for men! To the world I am a bit *****, That makes me a victim of bully and sneer, For my piercings in my nose and ear, And those pretty earrings that I love to wear, Is it a sin to dress in a skirt? And my blouse frills that I wish to flirt, All for an organ that makes me; part, With my identity deep in my heart? How I wish, I could walk in my heels, And seek attention of men with skills, To shower me with loving care and will, And presence that provides me a joyous feel; My passionate desire is to have a friend, Girl with whom I could delightfully spend, Moments discussing fashions latest trend, And secrets to keep unto our lives end. The world impedes me from breaking my shell, And my desire to be a belle, Yet there are moments I live in a spell, Know that I’m stuck in hell! In recognition of the plight of Transgenders in our society!!

May God's peace be with you. In a society where gender issues are not tolerated at all, it, I'm sure is very disheartening. Forgive me if I presume you speak from your own experience. But if you are, please take heart that the world truly is evolving and society's are becoming more aware and insightful of the realities of the human condition. Peace. :)
