That Night

Form: Free Verse

Unlearning the past
while learning the future
as if preparing to live in a new world
because everything changed that night
because I said I am transgender
but I’m still the same person
just with a deep husky voice
was it always like that because
before I was too scared to speak
yet in my heart and soul I knew the truths
the truths I didn’t dare say
I didn’t dare look at in the mirror
when reflections were not what they seem
while living on the edge of a dark abyss
just wanting to pull him up
into the light
the light of my own identity
yes, everything changed that night
because I said I am a man
