Backspacing Stereotypical Errors

You shouldn’t talk to a stranger,
Rather surrender naked in front of one,
You’re supposed to choose a man always and vice -versa,
Kill your inner desires as swiftly as you can!

What If I don’t feel safe with a masculine presence?
Even If I don’t connect with their soul,
Am I still supposed to overlook the real me within?
Uncomfortable with the person on the exterior, am I supposed to adjust to the society’s role?

Yes, she makes me confident about myself,
And she teaches my shattered self to fall in love with the person I’m!
She doesn’t discriminate like the hypocritical homo sapiens,
And she definitely and unconditionally embraces my bare soul the way, it has been the same!

Why should I succumb to the restrictions my heart doesn’t permit?
And why must my body crave for a man’s attention only!
If she’s the person who can make my world better sans the criticisms,
Be it being the woman myself, or trapped in a man’s vessel, Why can’t I be at peace with her, feeling less lonely?
