Boy's Thoughts (poem)

I can do it
No!  I have to do it
I don't know how
But you expect me to

Breasts, hips, pussy
how can I like them
you want me to
you force me to

Not normal
not human
what am I?
help me

you advise me to fake
not being myself
just lies
but also lying you despise

so what do you want me to be
but just like you
but what if I am not
I am not you

You hate me
I hate you
I hate me
You don't you.

But why all that
Because Father preaches it on Sundays
Because Professors teach it in schoools
Or because of common sense of reproduction

What if I can't be you?
I lust for buttocks, cocks and pecs
What do you say?
You do'nt want me to

So if you don't want me as I am
If you rather lose me than keep me as I am
I should leave you as I am
So that you stay as you are

blind, self-centered, and ignorant.
