I am.

Am I a girl or a boy 

Or none 

Am I girls or boys 

All in one 

Or one in all 

Do I dress up in skirts 

Or dress down like a man going to church 

Am I going to be killed for wanting to wear some pearls and flaunting my manly curves 

Are you going to physically hurt me? 

Or kill me with your words? 

Or are you going to remind me to chant some holy verse? 

Thou made of mud and water by an all mighty super deity 

That if I don’t dress a certain way or feel a certain way, I’ll be eternally cursed?

I don’t even see in the remotest how my deeply personal choices affect your human worth 

Now who is (man or) woman enough? 

What is masculinity? What is femininity? 

I am all and all is me and all is one 

One and all 

All and one 

It’s the same thing 

Maybe it’s time to get that head out of that medieval hateful cult that your mind has become 

Open up this heart. Open it up. Let flowers grow in this desert.
