The day she was born

The doctor said

“it’s a boy.”

and proceeded to wrap her in blue.


When she was one,

she was called big, fierce, and strong;

She just went along.

And she always wore blue.


When she was two,

She was given toy construction vehicles,

plastic dinosaurs,

and a gun - that shot bubbles.


When she was three,

she told her mom that she wasn’t happy,

she wasn’t who she wanted to be,

She was a boy.


Her mom assumed it was a phase

and figured things would change.

She told her

to give it some time.


When she was four,

she wanted a doll.

Her dad bought her a ball,

and called it a close call.


When she was five,

she tried to paint her nails

like the other females.

But her mom found her and took it away.


She cried and cried,

but her dad told her to grow up,

Boys don’t cry.

She should just be a tough guy.


When she was six,

She tried growing out her hair

but then her parents gave her a glare

and made her cut it all.


When she was seven,

she went to school.

Most of her friends were girls

and

they were able to be who they wanted to be.


When she was eight,

her dad signed her up

for little league baseball

He didn’t care for her opinion at all.


When she was nine,

she gave up.

She’d had enough.

This was her life,

and it wasn’t going to change.


When she was ten,

she was made fun of

for taking her shirt off the “feminine way”

at a pool party


When she was eleven

she read that

people who felt the way she did

wouldn’t be allowed into heaven.


When she was twelve,

she got first place in a science fair

and for the first time in her life,

her father was proud.


When she was thirteen,

she realized she was attracted

to other girls.


When she was fourteen,

she was called gay,

and several other names.


When she was fifteen,

she got sick of her life being a lie.

She couldn’t stop thinking how

all she wanted to do was die.


When she was sixteen,

she met a girl,

who was nice and all,

but very confusing too.


They began to date,

to her this felt like fate.

But deep down she knew,

she mustn’t stay around.


When she was seventeen,

she finally told her girlfriend

the truth.

Her girlfriend told her

she knew.


When she was eighteen,

she told her parents something unforeseen

she was a girl,

she always had been,

and always will.


M.C.R. // @a-random-emu (A project I made for my Sociology Class)

not to be r*mantic but all I really want is to hold hands with someone who likes to play with my hair and draw pictures of us together

This is a commission from the unbelievably amazing @mirthandstar!! I asked for hoodie!Steve smiling at a text from Tony and gosh, I just love this result so much!! I go hard for the cozy chic look - hot boys in hoodies make me feel faint - and Steve is so good at it. 

BTW that’s his SI hoodie, not one he stole from Tony, because he needs his very own swag that fits him as perfectly as this one does. Thank you Mirth! I love it so much <33333

(go get your own commission here!)
