"Identity"

Is it truly my fault
if I can't quite catch on to that term?

I don't see why I must pick a label
and stick with it from then on.

I don't know what I am.
I don't think I ever will.

I couldn't tell you
if I'm a boy, trapped
or straight
or if I'm gay.

I couldn't tell you
what I don't know how to say.
I can't fully express
how much I hate being a girl

Do I have to identify
as a boy or a girl,
in your binary bias?'

I am me.
Is that what you should see?

I want to be seen
for who I am
and who I could be
not for your perception of me.
