Poem - From The Shadows

The poem “From The Shadows” was prompted by a competition that asked the following question: “Upon this journey of life thus far, what would you take back if you could?”


From The Shadows

The decades passed before I knew
recognition of a core truth
affinity to alternatives
including base androgyny
I resisted the first hints
attraction asked for variance
beyond what most would embrace
in response I pulled within

into those shadows I retired
allowing a false normative
presenting visions for a world
that could not stomach any more
passing was the stratagem
hiding in the fullest sight
even though the lure was there
pulling me to look for more

the clock dealt discovery
revelation became the theme
turning pages with a shock
if only I could regress time
then I’d live the wider path
embracing attraction and much more
gender stated between the poles
at least there’s now to live a life.
