I saw a lot of people misjudged other people because of their gender identity. This poem aims to promote the gender equality as a whole.
It’s Me, Your Unlawful Child
Like a sunflower that blooms in a winter
It's hard to understand, it feels like a nightmare
Am I considered as a sinner?
When I, as a boy turns out to be a girl
I know it's wrong, so in the right place, I tried to stand
But what can I do? When like a water, it can never be on my hand
Darkness, fear, and pain, I lived in that kind of land
But what can I do? When it's my father who holds the wand
The time came when my heart encourage my brain
I get out of this world and break the chain.
In the world I showed my true gender and face the fear
Even the fear I feel for my beloved father
Then my eyes was filled with tears and anger
My trembling body and my heart was hurt altogether
When my father's fist and words hits me harder and harder
Saying " You unlawful child, I don't need you here".
When I left home alone
I studied hard and strive along
Then I finally found where I belong
Became a doctor, well and strong.
It was my father's birthday when I decided to come back home
And I was shocked seeing my ill and weak father at his room
He then asked me who I am,
I answered " It's me, your unlawful child"
Together, our tears falls from our eyes
He hugged me and I hugged him back.
