Needles and darts
Are the words flung over my head.
I can't even start
to describe the thoughts I get in bed.
The world feels like it's broken,
Everybody's views all seem to conflict.
There must be a way to fix that,
And we can find it. The clock still ticks.
I'm hiding everything from the world
But I'll tell you it all here, this is effectual.
I'm not a boy, I'm a girl,
A closet transsexual.
The world's terrible for people like me,
I can't even tell my parents who I wish I could see
And every night I look in the mirror, I hope
The world could give a little more support.
If I could change any little thing about this world,
You know what it would be.
I'd make it so trans kids could get the help they needed
So we wouldn't have to sit in our bedrooms, crying... we could be happy.
