I am Grey.
I am a non-binary human who goes by they/them.
I remember staying up, night after night. Day after day.
Just questioning myself. At the time I only knew of trans-female and trans-male. I felt like I wasn’t a boy or a girl. I was mad at myself, thinking it was my fault I felt this way.
Then I found out about “Non-binary” and I knew my place.
I searched for pronouns and soon I had whittled it down to ze/ hir or they/them.
I decided they/them fit who I am but my birth name is Sophia, very feminine.
So I had to find a new name, Since I am an artist one day I was painting mountains.
They grays and neutral colors caught my eye, As I slept I thought about gray.
And then it hit me, what if I spelled it like, “Grey” and It sounds like a name!
I knew who I was.
A NOTE TO NON-BINARY PEOPLE WHO DON’T HAVE A “NEW NAME” YET – You can find it, something as simple as painting made me find mine, just give yourself time.
