2 Sides Of MeWake up
Look at my reflection and happily say
Nothing needs to be done today
Little girly bra
With underwear to match
Maybe I could look like, quite the catch
Apply some lipgloss
Put on my shirt
It's about time I wore that frilly pink skirt

Pull on the Spiderman boxers
Strap the binder real tight
Ignore the pain, with all my might
Grab the plain black t-shirt
and the lose fitting jeans
I guess I'm not really all that it seems
Let's put this routine on shuffle, day after day
And ignore the ignorance most people say
Let's fake a smile when they only use 'she'
And just remember I am who I want to be
Not male, just female to my family, but both to my friends
The ones who make me stronger
I only have to keep this up for a little while longer

At length, after much stimulating conversation, Christopher stood, producing a book of sheet music.
"What do you all say to a bit of music?" he asked.
"Certainly," I answered.
"Oh yes, please do darling!" Tabitha exclaimed, "he's quite the maestro."
Christopher laughed, shaking his head.
"Now, now love, I'd not go that far."
He strode over to the piano as the other guests urged him on. Ida entered the room bearing a merrily steaming teapot and more crumpets.
"More tea sirs?" she inquired, shooting sideways glances at her
