Poem - Fondest Wishes

The poem “Fondest Wishes” is about the desires of a trans person to be in a form other than that realized at birth.  Some apparent non-binary individuals wish for a day that a switch could be thrown and fondest wishes be realized.


Fondest Wishes

If I could wake to the day
to see a body that does not betray
perception of who should stand
in the mirror at my command

the inner image brought to the front
society’s reaction would be blunt
no understanding of what should be
if fondest wishes were complete

this yearning is masked by paradox
living between the pull of poles
this appears to be the goal
treading water at cost of soul

if only dawn of day finally bring
a transformation most would regret
switching places to finally find
nirvana on the other side.
