Ways To Love/ Ways To Be

There are ways of being a man
That do not involve being a woman.
There are parts of myself
That never saw the dark side.
Sometimes, you cry so many flavors of tears
That your own blood
Stops tasting
Like your own blood.
Though this body has not always been mine
It has always been beautiful.
Though i despise the idea of “woman”
I do not despise women.
I must remind myself that
There is pain that is not mine
And that there are those who love what i cannot.
I must remind myself
That there are ways
Of appreciating beauty
That do not involve destruction.
