A human with two tears

I am a man,

with a penis

and two balls,

and desires

met by age.


And I will always

be a man if I

choose to be

and choose who

I want that comes

from this body.


But I am also a person

tender in the world

and hiding inside this

flesh that is a part

of me and all of me

and yet there seems more.


I am a person aware

of the needs that drive me

and the dreams that

guide me and the fears

that strike me down.


Through this tender heart

filled with dreams and fears

and needs there flows

my humanity, and in that

I stand with you, not as a

man with a penis and two balls

but as a human with two tears.
