Modern Day Caeneus

If Caeneus was alive

He would stand with all the kids

The one who wave their flags

Trying to find their place in the grid

He would look at the young men

Who are told they aren’t enough

And tell them he was once

Told all the same false stuff

He would tell them his tale 

Of his transition from 

Female to male 

How he felt happier in his skin

Once he broke through that gender bend 

He wouldn’t have died in battle 

But would died on the steps

Defending all the kids 

Who don’t have the correct sex

 

This poem is about: 
Me
Our world
