by Haywood

Deep breath, to take in air
Shaven face, now feeling bare
Broken home from this ordeal
Try understanding how I feel
Change of clothes to go to school
My lifestyle's against the rules
Deepened voice and aftershave
Today I'm bound, and no one's slave
I know that I am not your dream
But things aren't always as they seem
Aviators and binders hold
The secrets that I don't want told
I won't apologize for this
Transgress myself to give you bliss
For this is who I want to be
So don't look now... But this is me.
