In between two cultural identities

not being able to belong

constantly trying to find what is similar

      between us

    

to desire a belonging and a home

to want to understand the cultural

relationship

        between the groups we reside in

        

                        attempting change to fit 

not looking as I 'should'

not behaving as I 'should'

        Conforming to the ideals and what is expected

     of who I apparently should be

        Is this my identity?

constantly trying to figure out

why I feel this way and who I am

constantly attempting to adapt

    to what feels almost alien

that is where I am

limitations, expectations,

restrictions of a woman

       

           maybe it would have

been better born male
