[Poetry] Karma

Years ago
You used to say
He was great
He was praised, empowered
Uplifted
Affirmed.
But when he said he wasn’t he
When he became she
She was demonized, demoralized
Downsized
Rejected.
If only he hadn’t become she
You would say
Then he would have triumphed.
But, you see
He never transitioned
He never became she
She was always here
Encased by he
Held captive by he
And when she evolved from he
And when she emerged from he
Triumphant.
You were too blind
too deaf
too narrow
to see.
