Trapped with in my self imposed fears

Recommended Posts

Jocelyn

It's been a while since the urge to write poetry, I have always struggled with writing but amazed at what ends up on the paper.

 

Trapped

Living a life no one sees

Lost within the soul of another

Destined to be trapped looking at me

Tears never seen, cries never herd

The girl who never was yet always there

pushed down deep never to the light of day

the fear of lost self reality living the lie

living to be everything to everyone except her

looking to find a way to break thru self

trapped within an unauthentic life

 

Thank you for taking the time to read my wandering thoughts.

you just described my life. I felt the same way until I finally broke free last year. Wandering thoughts sometimes reveal things we don't know about ourselves. Very beautiful poem!

thank you for your kind words, I was writing in my journal trying to figure out somethings about my life and un expectantly the poem came out.

I am pleased with what comes out when I write poems, they are what is inside of me.

I love it! I found poems really allowed me to dig deep and reveal hard to access thoughts... I wish you all the best, your poem speaks to all of us.

Squishy hugs,

Jae

Jocelyn,

You are not alone, nor are you different. The great thing about this forum is that we get to meet people from different parts of the world, different cultures, but all the same nevertheless. Rereading your poem, I am reminded of my own life as "him", and how happy I am to be where I am now. 

 

Hugs,

Brandi

Hi Jocelyn,

I can only double Brandi’s thoughts on this she is right on the mark, as she so often is, this is a place for all of us, and we are not different, we are all remarkably similar with her own unique problems and issues,  but we’re all here for each other and that’s what draws us close. I myself have drawn immense power and strength from all the wonderful people here and couldn’t imagine my life without them, I would still be living a lie or at least denying myself and being miserable if I did not know this resource had existed. My only recommendation here is soaking in the love and acceptance of those here around you  and love yourself and allow yourself  The time and importance that you yourself deserve, this realization we’ve all come to is not an easy thing, but it might be the most important thing, as many Of us have come to realize. I really love your poem, I look forward to reading more poetry from any member. Your poem really speaks to me, even if it makes me cry I enjoyed it thoroughly and look forward to every new posting, please dig deep one more time and let us all enjoy what you have inside to share, I myself will be anxiously awaiting.

Big squishy hug,

Jae

      That sounds a good idea, at least for some. I don't know how many such numbers you have over there but, for me,  it gets confusing if numbers mount. I would still be calling 999 here which I learn't when I was little as a single easy remembered number rather than having to make a decision from unclear memory. I would not remember all ours without looking : 999, 111, 101 and 112. That is without a suicide line although 112 is the same as 999. Otherwise advising use of the Samaritans number here (free and unlisted on bills) 116 123. Obviously more to remember, but at least no area code so only six digits.   Tracy

      Thanks for sharing this, IMO you deserve happiness, I too struggled with the same feelings you have and it took a major life event to open my eyes. My wife of 20 yrs knew from the start I was at the least a cross dresser and she tried to accept it in much the same ways as yours (“I know you have to but I can’t really accept it”) type of way. Now that these things have happened and I came out as what I truly am my marriage is better. I had geared myself for divorce as well knowing her history. Like others have said be very careful of her sudden focus and deadline for a baby. Life is too short to make others happy when you can’t be happy yourself. It’s actually impossible to do. Find a new therapist and do some true soul searching to find out who you really are. Unfortunately it sounds like she won’t be able to be there for you, remember that’s not really her fault or yours, it was brought about by uncontrollable circumstances. I hope you can find yourself through all this and find happiness in whoever you may be.

      Me too, Sandra. I started at about 8, I seem to remember, but there were times before then when I just tripped on tight DIY costumes. I've reached 75 years with those same things as you, and I'm very happy to know I'm not the only fogy on this forum. I'm sitting here in a comfortable black bra that's starting to poke, and tight fitting tuckable panties. The feelings are moving away from sexual gratification toward enjoyment of the sensations and some understanding of how women feel. I'm letting my hair grow out, enjoy the "curls" in the mornings, but other than home, I wear it in a man-style pony with a bandana head scarf. I imagine myself as a young attractive girl, I enjoy dressing up alone at home, but the sight greeting me in the mirror turns me off on the idea of "presenting" in public. Uugglyyy.  Really, I have no idea what to make of it all. This forum is teaching me to accept, "It is what it is." I shop on ebay and AliExpress, where the clothes are cheap in price and quality, but it's fun getting new stuff in the mail. Go try it on immediately, usually with my collection of vibes, but they're becoming irrelevant. So I don't know where this path will lead me, but I don't care much at my age, and I'm curious to see the sights along the way. From here on out, we fogies can live our lives the way we want and I enjoy trying to figure out what that is.  Hope to talk some more, friend.

      That “mold“ is always changing with the times and it’s likely your view and understanding of yourself will change and develop over time.  In my own journey, as I reach each new milestone and look back on my thoughts and beliefs, I noticed how much they have changed as well.  Each journey is unique and independent of everyone else's.   Warmest Regards, Susan R🌷

      https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/nobody-can-question-my-faith-evangelical-lutheran-church-ordains-first-transgender-latina   Japan has been very slow to adopt policies & laws to protect trans rights.  Not surprising in a tradition-bound male dominated society.   Carolyn Marie

      Thank you @Jackie C. truly is important to find what makes me happiest. I lose sight of that a lot and get caught up in other things. I really appreciate your wisdom! The only thing stopping me from finding that happiness is myself.

      Here here! I love our community. So much love, it feels like family. It's probably the first time in my life (besides maybe my punk rock family) I feel like I belong...    ~Toni

      Gotta love the VA. I walk into the woman's clinic. the receptionist asks, "How can I help you, Ma'am. it just feels good. most everyone there calls me Kymmie. I truly am comfortable at the VA being my true self. Even though it is a place where military personal are everywhere. The air even seems full of T. yet.   I had a discussion with my GYN. I feel that I am working towards my goal. How ever slowly. All of my medical team is helping me towards my goal. Whether it is divorced or still married.   Kymmie

      Thank you for sharing this part of yourself hun! I hope whatever happens in your relationship, it's for the best for your happiness, and hers too. We do need to be self-focused sometimes though, or we might never be happy.    I totally relate to growing up feeling envious of females, shopping and dressing up and all. I remember always wanting that but it felt forbidden, you know...    ~Toni

      Oh that's great to hear and a great idea!! Thank you so much for your time.

      In the U.S. it depends on your state.  You are flying the State Of Washington flag in your profile and there the answer is yes but it depends on the individual county Public Social Services agency that approves foster homes for the court system.  I have friends in CA who are Trans, and get Trans Kids staying with them for various periods of time.  You might also look at the idea of providing a home for Trans teens who have "aged out" of the normal foster care systems, but who can be eligible for housing assistance from the state or private groups.
