The pressure is building and I want to let it out.
The strain of feelings- a heavy burden.
I try to let it go.
But the desire to conform to what is normal,
What is expected,
Holds me back.

No one really knows what’s going on beneath the surface,
what’s hidden from sight.
But I can’t hold it in much longer.
I have to let it out.

People all around me
Do they see me?
Do they really know?
What secrets I’m hiding.

I brace myself.
You can do this,
I tell myself.
You can do it.




I stand in the warmth of my freedom
Peeing in the ocean.
