I, being trans and lez sometimes have to come out twice to the same person, and that's what this is for.

Always have I known the reprecussions

Of hasty action without thought

So when it came to me what I might be

I agonized for days searching for proof.

Proof I was, proof I wasn't;

I didn't care, I wanted proof.

But my analytical mind failed to find

The Proof of Inner Truth.

 

So if you ask me

"How do you know you are?"

All I can do is ask you

"How do you know you're not?"

 

Belief does not shape facts,

Facts rarely shape belief,

But the fact I believe is;

I am a lesbian transwoman

And my name is Rose Black.

I love this poem! You really captivate how simple the idea of a different sexuality, or gender identification is, despite the confusion of others surrounding it. Really good poem!

I kinda think that even though it is about my gender identity and sexuallity, it could be really anything for anyone. (with minor editing, of course)
