doesn’t fit into your boxes

of her, him, or hir.

they doesn’t feel like your daughter,

or son,

but your child, your blood.

their identity is their own,

one you can’t complete with your

two dimensional

gendered eyes that create a world of

blue, and pink.

to them,

this life is a colossal mixture,

of purples, yellows, greens and browns,

of masculinity,


and the inexplainable immersion of sex roles,

into the sea beyond the gender binary so many refuse to acknowledge.

and within the she’s and he’s,

I am them, their, and they,

a human being,

with worries of not being enough,

in one community,

or another.
