When a bird or a butterfly
For their lives
This is how
When a bird or a butterfly
For their lives
This is how
This is one of my favourite poems that I wrote in my boy. It’s true that I didn’t title any of my works from the book and there is a reason for it, I wanted you the readers to make my writing yours. To think your own life thoughts from your life.
When I tell people, I am a boy
They treat me like a broken toy
When you’re in the wrong body, it feels like a cage
Full of fear and rage
I am transgender is what I will yell
One day my body will get out of this hell
Myself is hard to embrace
When I feel like an empty space
The real me I want to see bloom
Even if I had to walk to the moon
No more shame
When I hear my birth name
Enough with being numb
Happy times will come
I remember very clearly where I was when I wrote this, I was at my dad’s in my childhood home. And feeling the pain that I was going through having told my mum and sister that I’m a trans guy and I remember being very angry at myself because I wanted to be the person that my family wanted so they would accept me.
Then, I realised that before they start to accept me and see me as a man, I have to do that myself first. A bit longer than a year and a half from that day. I did have a name change, and my gender marker changed to male, so my name carries no shame as I said in the last line, I still believe that happy times will come. I guess if I was honest, now that I’m rereading this I think it’s a reminder that everything will be okay in the end.
Leave the tease
And let everyone live in peace
Social media goes to war
But what is this all for?
What message are you sending?
An honest one or just pretending
Be you not a fake
From a fake person, there is nothing to take
Don’t be scared to show emotion
To keep your life is a smooth motion
Can go further than a mile!
(I entered with this poem in a contest and it don’t win, so I thought you guy can enjoy it instead).
The family dog has been missing for weeks, and everyone is devastated (except that one family member, of course). Suddenly, the dog returns, showing up out of nowhere. (Most of) the family rejoices. But as time goes by, it becomes clear that something isn’t quite right with the beloved canine companion…

I was just a few months old when my mum gave me” the pup talk.” she said, gather around my pups, I have something important to tell you.
She said,” In a few days you’ll get your own, human to protect and love while they’ll care for you and hopefully love you back.”
A few days later, I hear giggles, laughter and wheels and that got me a bit confused, so I pointed my ears and started turning my head in all directions, to try and hear better what’s going on.
” Luca, this is Bella, my dog and these are her puppies”.
Luca turned to his mum and asked her” why are we here?”.
She smiled at him and said,” today we are here so you can choose your new best friend.” “So, which one do you want?”
I went by the door gate since I wanted to sit in the boy’s lab.
” How about the black and white, one with the purple collar?”
My mum’s human picked me up and handed me on Luca’s lap and curled and lay there because I could feel that I just found my human and I could find that Luca was glowing with happiness.
” Does she have a name?” ”no, you need to give her one.”
Mmm, let me think, oh I’ve got one, how about Joy, Luca that’s perfect! Luca lower this face in my fur and whispered in my ear.” Your name is Joy, little one.”
I slept on his lap all the way home.
Welcome home Joy!
I peeked, I wanted to go explore my new home, but I didn’t want to leave Luca’s side, so I didn’t move till he told me I could. We ate dinner Luca’s mum helped him to get ready for bed after she put me in my crate where my dog bed and food and water bowls were. However, so I quickly began missing my human, so I started to moan and cry. After a few hours, mum came for me and took me to Luca, and he started petting me, and I laid my head on Luca’s chest and went to sleep hearing his heartbeat knowing that my human is safe and happy I could sleep peacefully.
A couple of years passed, and I taught a few tricks so I can help Luca.
“Joy can bring my pill bottle?” so I grabbed it in my mouth and took it to him cause Luca’s a wheelchair user, so I was trained to help him.
“Honey, I’m home, and Ray came too” oh no, here we go again. Ray is mum’s new boyfriend, and he doesn’t like me.
“Liz, I thought you got rid of that BEAST” he shouted. “Ray how many times will I have to tell you that Joy is Luca’s therapy dog so I can’t get ‘rid’ of her that easy” “Okay, then I’m leaving and don’t call me ever again” WAIT! “I’ll go put her in the outdoor kennel, so she won’t bother.” Luca didn’t say anything because he didn’t want to see his mum sad and alone.
In the middle of the night, I heard steps it was Ray opening my kennel door. “Come on, bitch I’m taking you to my man Dave, and you won’t be so brave then.”
I tried to fight not to get inside the car but, Ray was too strong for me, so I had to give up. When we got there, Ray’s friend asked him how much he wants for me.
Ray said, “I just want to get rid of her”. He just threw me out of the window and drove off. After an unknown man grabbed me by my collar and threw me in a cage. The next time I see another human is when I had to kill another dog in a fighting ring. In the hopes that one day, I’ll see my Luca again.
Arrest them all
Said the body police
They’ll make the boy sick
These naughty cells,
Are playing around
But the body police
Is here once again
To save the day
For a healthy and happy
There was a girl
Who had a lot of questions?
Why is pink for girls and blue for boys?
I went to church the other day
And the priest said
That I can only love a man
Because God says so
I felt sad because I like my best friend
And she’s a girl
Just like me.
I wrote this because of gay and lesbian relationships, this week, were banned in one more country which is sad.
One brave person
And don’t you dare
