Dear Uncertain Teachers,
You may have noticed some features
some things I'm insecure about
but I'm here to tell you without a doubt
that I am a boy.
I know my voice goes high
I may speak flamboyant from time to time
but my range goes on from soprano to tenor
so please try harder and I'll feel better
for I am a boy.
The shape of my face may cause some question
but don't make my gender feel like a confession
the shape of my body may have some curves
but ignoring the subject increases my nerves
I've told you, I am a boy.
I hope you needn’t proof to think that it's true,
I hope you'll accept it as I tell you,
I suppose it may be hard to understand
but as long as you try I won't reprimand
just remember that I am a boy.
I'm glad to be an active part of your class
where you give me work, I give you one task:
please respect my pronouns, or at least start trying
if you have any questions I implore you to chime in
From one of your transgender students,
