He’s such a good boy
Playing with his monster truck toy
But everything changes when they leave the room
Blush on cheeks bloom
He goes to his mother’s closet, pulls out a dress
Only ten minutes, no more, no less
Pull it on, look in the mirror
The girl inside, he fears her
But when he wears it he feels so light
But they say it just isn’t right...
Rip it off, put it away
“Such a good boy.” That’s all they say.

You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
~exerpt from Max Ehrmann's Desiderata

This is a great poem!

Yes, because homosexuality makes you want to wear dresses. Obviously. In all seriousness, no, it's about a transgender girl who can't be herself because of her environment.
