I Walk Between a Line

I Walk Between a Line
By: CiCi Schmidt

I walk between two lines

Boy and girl

Straight and gay

Normal and freak

I walk between two lines and people tell me

Pick one.





Between the lines of boy and girl

I use they/them pronouns

I sometimes drift toward the boy

But never go fully there.

Yet everyone thinks I’m

On the girl side.

I’m not.

I walk between the lines.





Between the lines of straight and gay

I carve out my own path.

People say I am 

Inhuman

For feeling the way I do.

I have my own form of love and

Those who receive it know it.

I carve my own path

Between the lines of straight and gay.





I walk between many lines.

Yet I draw my own.
