I knew who I was... telling everyone else was hard. How do I say I'm not who you think?
I'm breathless

I cried
I laughed
I beamed and sobbed
and heaved

I let it all out
I set it free
I spoke the words I needed to say

And it's not all finished
It's still hot inside me
But the
Bubbling
Is now just
Simmering
And the shouting
Now just telling

I finally found the word
I knew the terms
I told

It felt confusing
And frustrating

Like a dream

And terrifying

My identity gone
         no
My identity
Reinvented

It's not set in stone
But I'm breathless
And I'm tired
So parchment will do for now
