There once was a young girl
Who knew she was a young boy
She struggled to be a girl
And ignore the boy inside of her
Vic screamed inside of her
Pushing, clawing, desperately hoping
Trying to break free.
But fear of rejection, fear of loss
Fear of being disowned and death
Made Vee a whole lot stronger than him.
So Vic waited patiently for Vee to weaken
He waited for the danger to pass, for acceptance
He waited for Vee to realize that she was wrong.
Vic was not the wrong one, he was the true one.
Vic had been there from the beginning.
Vic was the truth, he was the reality.
Vee was the mask, the persona that Vic wore
She was who he pretended to be for love
She was the persona that he wore for the world.
But Vic didn't want to pretend any longer
Vic wanted to show the world, his family, himself
That he was alive, that he was there and that he was truth.
Regardless of the fear, the danger, the hatred
Regardless of the death threats and the insults
Vic was determined to live.
Vic was determined to be.
Because there once was a young girl
Who was really a young boy
Had always been a young boy.
