MamaMia
I give myself permission to not succeed,
to continue as a train guard,
to stay a pre-op transgirl,
and if it all gets too tough, or if I snap,
to kill myself.
I give myself permission
to
not obey the dictates of the world around me,
permission to follow my path, to live my story,
and permission to not suggest
anyone else should follow this road.
This does not say I won't succeed,
or change career, or have SRS, or
stay alive, or follow the demands of this world,
for all that can be living my story,
treading my road too.
However, I will not suggest
anyone else should or shouldn't
live this philosophy,
for they have their own will and choices to make.
Their own life to live.
