This Poem Means A Lot To Me

Read this poem many years ago and it is true for me, a transgender woman ... but a woman none the less.

 

Womanhood

By Jenelle Rose © 2/28/2003

I walk the line between woman and man,
First feeling one thing then feeling I can
To have the life I had always dreamed, I say;
At least I want it to go that way

It would be wonderful and great,
Time to get started, before it's too late!
I'm going to be a part of womanhood,
I love that sound, that word...
It's what I am, was meant to be;
Now the outside will catch up with the rest of me.
