A little bit Country, A little bit Rock 'n' Roll


In all of us is a dual character
although born male or female
we have traits and characteristics
of both genders

As a woman I feel compassion
but within that compassion
is a masculine strength
ready to take on anything
that may hurt anyone I love

At times I may cry
letting sobs fall
heavy and unrestricted

At other times
nothing will bring a tear to my eye
as I hide behind the wall of
male ego

I am a little bit country
and
I am a little bit Rock 'N' Roll

I can swing it with the best
in any environment

If I had been born with testicals
I doubt I would be any different
than I am today

A balance of all that I believe in
without gender or preference
For I believe that either way
I am who I am
and that all I ever can be.
