Transitioning: Using I Statements

Mind Blowing Mirror Photography

Am I still using that same mirror?
The one that says how pretty I should be,
after how long on HRT
That looking glass,
that tells me I can’t Pass

I find myself bothered
By what it says to me,
Oh honey, you look like a he
That insensitive reflection,
with critical inflection

So, I would prefer,
to not hear your opinion,
how my eyebrows cover my antinion
Or, how my clothes just don’t fit right
by your opposite line of sight

I feel so much better,
when I turn my back to you,
to skew my point of view
Then I can’t tell what you are seeing
and now, I can truly assess my being

I do appreciate you my dear reflection
Your desire to help me improve,
has caused me to make a move
Well, I’ll be back when I want your advice,
But for now, how I feel inside, it will suffice….
