I AM (Not My Body)

I possess my gender
with my DNA

Please respect
the advantage
for me to claim

But if you see my body
you do not see me

Dysphoria is a body
mistaken for a soul

invisible vessel
neither male
nor female

no heritage but all
transracial identity

this is my culture
a family of Spirit

in a nation of souls
without ancestry
