I am who I always will be.


Cut your hair boy,

Why are you bald.. you are a girl.

You do not meet expections,

but it isn't you, it is just the world...

Yes hunny it is ugly.

And they'll say you aren't beautiful.
But It is not their place to say,

How you should display your face...


If you want to wear make-up,

By all means, paint it on.
Life is your red carpet,

They won't care until you have moved on.

I cannot change my values to make you confortable.
Instead, just open your mind..

So you will see,
 I am who I always will be, me.
