I have held this secret for years. So uncomfortably. Feeling so dirty. Like my life is a big lie. Now my family knows. It was hard but necessary to tell them. They were understandably shocked but supportive. Now in the comfort of a warm bubble bath, I look at myself and I am finally happy. I have transformed from Dan to Danielle. The secret is out. I can be me.
This is fiction. It was done for Picture it & Write
I urge people to join in, comment with your paragraph of fiction to accompany the image. It doesn’t have to follow my story or reflect the same themes. It can be a poem or in a different language (provide a translation please). Anyone who wants to join in, is welcome. This photograph will be reblogged under Ermisenda on tumblr and added to the Picture it & Write gallery on Facebook and Pinterest.
