Poem - My Own Sister

“My Own Sister” was inspired by the play with the name “I Am My Own Wife”.


My Own Sister

I am my sibling in my heart
cloaked behind a brawny front
at last the truth has been revealed

gender filled within the gaps
fairer sex found at last
attained in shadows of the soul

today the signs are understood
pointing towards an inner tribe
seen in the mirror of my life

embracing sister found within
forms identity of myself
lineage explaining who I am.
