i wish.....

I wish...

September 8, 2020

I wish we could dress however we want.
I wish anybody could wear makeup if they want.
I wish boys could wear skirts and eye shadow.
I wish boys could wear t-shirts and tennis shoes.
I wish girls could have short hair and wear hoodies.
I wish girls could wear dresses and high heels.
I wish I could wear skinny jeans and crop tops.
I wish I could wear a binder and buzz-cut my hair.
I wish the first thing you asked everyone was their name and pronouns.
I wish nobody cared about who loves whom.
I wish nobody said things like "That's not ladylike."
I wish nobody said things like "Real men don't cry."
I wish we could all be whoever we want to be.

    every time someone writes a poem like this, or wears something gender non-conforming, or even just recognizes and accepts and loves themselves for who they are, the world becomes a little closer to this vision. stay strong, we'll be there one day!
