Why does it annoy you for people to be who they truly are?  if they truly feel like a boy or truly feel like a girl and want to switch, then that is fine. but you cannot truly feel like something that doesnt exist.  the gender fluid thing annoys me because the person gets annoyed if you get the pronoun wrong. they could be wearing a dress but be feeling like a guy that day, so if i say "her" the person gets mad. how was I supposed to know?

---- When the rain drops There will be no sun It's okay that We must learn It isn't bad when The thunder rolls When the lightning strikes, and It may be frightening to experience But There will be a rainbow Even after the worst of storms ---- ---- "Don't hold your breath" They said, "Your dreams will crumble so" "Just as quickly as they were built" He listened to those words As his life went on He lost all hope for his future He can't say he was prepared for The negative reality, They thought they were warning him They were only breaking him when They took away his childhood. ---- What's interesting about these two poems is that they can be read starting from the first line and going down, but they can also be read starting from the bottom line going up.
