It's a word that's been

Thrown around lately


That has unfortunately

Been brought to my attention

Because it is about me,

It is me.

I have been "erased"

Erased from the books of history

From the media

From society

From the world

From life.

My identity is just a myth

A legend

Something that doesn't exist in the minds of some

Certain people with one idea of "normal."

I need to be heard

I need to be seen

Because I am not invisible

I am real

I am here

I am alive

I am a person

And I deserve better.

So here's a news flash:

I exist,

Normalcy does not.
