This face I see in the mirror It doesn’t belong to me This long hair These pale blue eyes Whos are they They are not mine They do not belong to me
The people at school do not understand why I hide my body I hide with baggy clothing and short hair But everyone can see through this mask I wear I smile and say I’m fine but they can see every word I say is a lie
So I tell them why I do these thing “ But why you're such a pretty young girl” I say not girl and they say woman I say Boy They say Girl I say Kole They say Maggie
What did I do to deserve this Whats wrong with my name whats wrong with who I am I don’t judge people for who they like or who they are of who they want to be You don’t judge people for dying their hair or changing their nose But as soon as I say I want to be called a name it’s histarea
Whats wrong with one name They say “ what next? Do u want to go to the boys locker room and hang out with them.” Yeah so I feel more comfortable But no I must fit society I must be what i'm perceived as I must be this robot that follows every command
Were fed this false information that anyone who is different is wrong or bad We must hide from different We must cage it As soon as we are perceived as different we become a mouse in a cage full of lions We get attacked
There are those few how will jump into the lion cage to save the small mouse But then you get stolen away from your savoir and put in a cage for inspection They scrutinize every part of you
Im a rainbow in sky full of clouds and I’m all alone I know there are others but until you come out you are who they made you to be Then when you do finally say how you feel you get rejected and hated and told you are not valid
I am here to tell every person who has ever felt this way You are valid and loved and strong Don’t listen to them
And to those of you who disregard their pronouns or hate them for loving who they love You are wrong you do not understand everything they could be going through Take it from someone who knows transphobia and bulling first hand you bullies never win The small mouse in the cage of lions out smarts all of you and escapes through the bars while you stand stunned and stuck in that cage with no goal now I’m gone
This is for my school talent show and I'm so exited and nervous.
Oh just look at all of you boys You can't believe your eyes You had said that I was ugly Now I take you by surprise You really should have been nicer Ironic at that Now I'm the big show And none of you are even half of that
Hope you enjoy Watching my ******* rise The dear bullies in the school yard Am I on your mind? You now say you love me But what about before? When I was nothing But the ugly little girl next door
You want to play? Is your finger ready to fire? Ready to shoot your harsh words, through my hopes and desires? For if your ready to shoot Go right ahead But if your ready to **** another Then you must be ready to be dead
do you know that girl that you called fat, she went home after school and cut because of you do you that guy you called stupid, he gets abused at home do you know that girl you called ugly, her family hates her and she wears makeup to make she self pretty do you know that person you called emo, she has no one there, everyone hates her, she has no friends, and she has so much pain, so the only way she can get ruin of some of that pain is if she cuts because unlike someone people she has no one to turn to stop bulling, stop saying **** , stop and get to know that person before you start judging, please people around the world are hurting and getting bullied, let try and make it stop,
The words you produce are poison The type that spreads fear It's an echo of oppression That mutters close to ear You think it's just for fun Just a quick win For you it's a passing comment But for me it's embedded in my skin 'They're just words' you say, You're a freak, man, ****, 'Remember what you're worth' That's what it really like, You don't think before you say Whenever you speak these slurs You perpetuate the hate Masking me in caricatures So next time you begin to say, Those little words to me Please check your ego, And ******* let me be.
