Female Secret, Male Truth

Breasts pushed down and out
Bound in elastic
Hidden by layers
To look masculine

Hips in fitted jeans
Just perfectly so
As not to disclose
An undesired truth

Voice deepened to hide
The true pitch it holds
Just so the world won't
View me as female

Hair kept at short lengths
At all times, always
For fear of letting
This secret public

Why all this labor?
All this extra work?
Just to be seen for
Who I am inside
