i.

They said
He couldn't feel like a boy
And a girl
At the same time.
So he grew his hair long
With colorful dreadlocks
And wore eyeliner
But kept his name.

ii.

They told her that
She could either love boys
Or girls
Or both.
Not everyone.
So she fell in love
With the boy who
Was born as a girl.

iii.

He didn't feel love
For the girl with the large chest.
Or the boy with the sparkling eyes.
But that didn't mean
He didn't love them
In his own way.

If that boy's way of loving is
Invisible,
And the boy with the long hair and eyeliner's way of loving is
Invisible,
And the girl who had a taste for personality, not gender's way of loving is
Invisible
Then aren't we all just
Invisible
Too?
Also named 'invisible.'

EDIT: oh my gosh. I cannot believe this got a DD! Thank you so much, to :iconthorns: for featuring it to every single dA member who took the time to read, comment, or favorite. Thank you all so much. This is amazing. <3

Very good poem. Re-read it recently so sorry for commenting this late. It describes this with such simplicity, and it is really touching. As an asexual I recognized myself in it. Thanks. :)

In sex ed and stuff, when the teachers start to teach you about normal relationships, they should begin the lesson by reciting this poem. And then ask the class what they think a "normal" relationship is, and if there are any different kinds. This. Is. Amazing.

This is beautiful! Thank you. I hate how sexuality is treated so obscurely in education. I was never taught anything except boys and girls, how I could only think of boys romantically. And no one ever told me that no one even has to be a boy or a girl - I was always just told to be a girl and like boys. This poem hit me hard, wow...sorry for the rant
