Description, Abstract, or Artist's Statement

This is a poem showing the progression of my feelings in relation to my gender throughout my life. I identify as both non-binary and as a genderfluid demi-boy, which means I feel my gender changes occasionally, but I usually feel male. I am a member of the trans community, specifically the non-binary portion within it, and I feel this poem accurately represents how that gender identification showed itself as I grew up, even before I realized I wasn't a girl.

A note from the author: The feelings expressed in this poem about what it's like to be genderfluid, transgender, non-binary, etc. do not reflect the feelings of all individuals who identify the same.
