When I set up my profile I put down my gender Right away No qualms
But when it came to my age... Sometimes I put it down Sometimes I take it off
And I wonder why...
Somehow, to me My gender has been Entrenched, in my sense of identity
When I was little, I remember thinking “I like being a girl” And there was nothing To it, really No true reason I just liked who I was
But when it comes to age... Social anxiety Lack of confidence Gave me difficulties When interacting with peers As I would have liked At times Adults were kind And I saw them through rose colored glasses, mature individuals I wanted to emulate At times
Then... At other times I wanted to be a little kid Innocent, young, free Especially When we started having homework
So. My gender Is okay with me But as for my age...
There’s nothing wrong with it But my double sense of identity Between young And old Keeps me from consenting To permenantly leaving those Little Black Numbers On my profile
How about you? Are you certain about your gender? Age? Neither? Both?
