Hermaphrodite

Father. Mother. You are both and neither. Always shifting appearance. Always shifting gender. It confuses my own body. Are these parts mine?

Dysphoria. It comes and goes. As a child I always wished I was a shape shifter. I wanted to change myself from girl to boy. I wanted to be fluid. I wanted to be both a woman and a man. Sometimes all at once.

Hermaphrodite. That’s what you are. Both masculine and feminine. Wrapped in an ancient, confusing package. King and Queen.

I don’t think I can ever know you fully. I will never know myself fully.
