Finding Me?

"A draft from last year. I'm now they/them, but I'm still finding me every day, so thought I'd share."

Author's Notes

""I feel like I'm living somebody else's life A constant pretending,  a need to be liked  By everyone…   It's all I ever wanted To let down my guard Be out in the open Not have to try so hard." -Undercover, Milck; the inspiration song."

Labels.
There are so many labels now.
And it's confusing
And scary
And amazing
Because I finally know where I fit

These didn't exist when we were all finding ourselves
Though I paused finding myself 
to hide myself
in the identities of others. 
We, not me.

I'm still finding me
But I know pieces
I am a business owner
I am a writer
I am a line cook
I am a bookworm 
I am she/they
I'm somewhere in the Rainbow Club

I want to shout these from rooftops
I want everyone to know
I don't want to hide anymore
But I don't know how
To be loud and proud.
