And was carrying my DNA…..

When the community feel like they have every right

To talk about MY SEXUALITY and which gender I fall under

Even when I tell them how I feel inside…

When all the men in the taxi rank feel like they have all the rights

To tell me how to dress my OWN body and how a Woman is suppose

To dress so that they can respect her….

When the society feel like I AM LESS OF A MAN if I chose to

Raise my children while my wife is building her career and ensuring

A bright future for our children…

When I feel like I am leaving a life that I have borrowed from someone else

While I feel like my life is nothing but a dark place where everyone have
