‘What a gloomy day…’ you thought as you walked down the damp streets of your neighbourhood. You sighed as you reached a small coffee shop, walking inside and taking a seat. As soon as your clothes met the cushions of the seats, rain began to poor heavily, causing you to just sigh once more.
“Today wasn’t amazing” you admitted. It was one of the worst you’d faced in a while. Your rain simply reflected your emotions. You remained like that until a tall man asked you if you wanted anything, a smile on your face. You asked for a hot chocolate with floating marshmallows and he smiled, running off to get it. You thought a man that big would have been intimidating, but you shook it off, looking out the window once more. It was then you saw him. A man, bundled from top to toe, the rain pelting down onto him as he walked into the shop. You walked up to him, asking if he was alright, earning a smile from the wet man.

One of the boys, one of the brothers
"One of these things is not like the others"
The fourth child of my Mothers'.
"You can never hope for androgyny,
Aim to be what I want you to be,
Be only what my eyes can see"
You are gone now, detached and dismissed,
Like the 3 foot locks that shackled my wrists,
To this forced acceptance of what you wanted me to be,
In your limited future and expectation of me.
Negativity poisoned my questioning mind,
So thoughts of myself were left behind,
'til I was free from your design.
"There's my boy", I hear through the door,
From a mother who never expects anything more,
Than individuality from child number four.
Not quite one of the boys, and not quite the latter,
Though accepted completely by those who matter,
As being who I am with this sense of duality,
Confusing explanations as simple reality.
I have no desire to make you understand
I just don't want to have you dismiss me offhand
As confused for not being as biologically planned.
