An Ode to my Vagina
In honour of Transgender Week of Awareness, we partnered with a gender diverse poet to bring you trans poetic excellence...
An Ode to my Vagina
I would like to give thanks for all that you are
For how much you’ve put up with
It’s a lot so far
But I’ve dismissed you
All of this time
I didn’t know how much I liked you
Until one fateful night
As I lay on my back,
Staring at the ceiling
I found myself getting bored,
Craving ‘that’ particular feeling
As my fingers traced down over my scarred flat chest,
I feel the blood start to rush,
Making me twitch and clench
Up and down, right to left,
my index and middle fingers dance
I feel smooth, soft, ridged and wet
My pink lips part
I feel the wrinkles and folds
Moving around in circles
The pleasure grows
How on earth could just me be making this feeling?
A simple swirl of the digits has me literally creaming??
I took this rare moment to stall and pause for a sec
To appreciate this body and particular set of lips
Faced adversity and hate from countless bigots
Asking why I have one when my facial hair is thick
A deeper voice, my masculinity
Has people so confused they just can't believe
A man like me, so simple to see
Has something they’ve dreamt about personally
Straight men crave it yet never with me,
Gay men fear it for it challenges their “identity”
No one is pleased it seems!
Well except the devoted FTM kink community
But I’m more than a fetish, a toy, a prize
Not something to check off in the experiences of life
I’m sick and tired of my vagina being hated
To think only cis females have vaginas is way too out-dated
So I challenge you dear reader, whoever you are
To think carefully about what you’ve been told and especially about who you are
Vaginas are wonderful!
If that’s not your thing,
that is also okay!
You’re allowed to think what you think.
But don’t come on Grindr and tell me dumb sh*t
That I can’t be a man and also have a clit
My vagina is sexy,
My vagina makes me and others feel just right.
So dear vagina, thank you immensely
For bringing me endless orgasms and amazing sensitivity
I love how you feel
(And others have no complaints)
So this ode is to you
You have my biggest thanks.
Thank you so much for all of the pleasure
And here’s to the future
Getting wrinkly together ;)
