When She Feels Right To Bloom

Since she could remember

inside she didn't think

from outside things didn't seem

as if something was right 

among who she felt different from

as if the other side is where

in which she belonged.

 

By the age of 6, she knew

but it wasn't until 14 when she had a clue

before strong feelings

from an unsual phantom

on her chest,

to a disgusting perplexity below

inside she thought of all

of these feelings and made sense 

from them, with a focus

on the side she felt good on

despite that not being the side

of which she was given, and

out she bloomed.
