Transform (2011)

By Damien Knight

I remind myself what I feel
The ever turning wheel
Tells me how cruel life is
This body lies, it is remiss
I’ve painted myself a mask
To avoid the important task
Of acknowledging my fate
I can’t be me it’s too late
Still I must or I’d rather die
This mask I wear a broken lie
My dream is to transform
Become the man I always known

Dating While Trans: Stressed (Nov, 2012)

By Damien Knight

Getting what I asked for
Pain, emotional pain, turmoil
You treat me such yet I run to you
Blasted with a dose of stress
Force me back into my closet
Why I swear I have only loved you
I am no little girl
How dare you treat my so blasé
Does it matter, I am a man
Why care what others have to say?
Is it not me you adore?
don’t hide like i’m a secret girlfriend
I don’t even look female anymore
If I am not worth being open
You are not worth my effort
Can you be forgiven
I think not when I am fed doubt

Quick Update

By Damien Knight

Trump memo leak about the planned erasure of trangender people by redefining gender has had me feeling depressed. I admit I am feeling it is better to end my life than exist in a society that can erase and murder me. I will not do this. I will fight back!

I went to my doctor yesterday and am now back on Adderall for my ADHD. I am also taking synthroid for my thyroid. I will be calling my endo and start back on testosterone. I won’t let this administration define me.

I am me! I am Male! #wontbeerased

Quick Journal Update

By Damien Knight

The job of the stay at home parent. It is never done, constant cleaning, meal prep. I have had next to zero time to write and no time to study. I been catching up on the mountain of laundry I had to do. It was not fun. Almost done with the next chapter of the novel though. Hope to post it soon.

Blog Update

By Damien Knight

For several weeks I’ve had an outpouring of muse. Today I feel I’ve run dry again. I deleted several poems for personal reasons. I am going through a cycle of depression and feel like I should just focus on my novel. After all raising two kids and taking college courses is hard enough. I’ll make sure to have at least one post a day.
