The life of a butch woman is full of hate,
Her life executed in a blink of eye,
Sent into a shadow of sorrow,
Humanity no longer exists.
Heartless women celebrate the death of another woman
I fear the cold hearts of homophobic women.
Celebrating the struggles of masculine women.
I’ve seen butch women being treated like ghosts.
Their existence ignored,
Their pain numbed,
because pain is what describe their life better.
