A Drag Queen's Truth

 He had on a dress
And I called him a she

And loved him for it.

She spoke the truth
And I knew he had lived it

And so I believe her.

I want to live in truth
And embrace my flaws

As Toni has done his.

Because to live in a dress
And be clearly a he   
And still love himself in the morning

Is beautiful.
