How would you know?

How would you know?
That he is a transgender
How would you know?
That he wished that he
Was a women instead of
Being a men
How would you know ?
If he shave his legs
How would you know?
If he is married to another men
How would you know?
If we can trust him
How would you know ?
If he is loving and caring
How would you know
If people talk behind his back
Because that is a terrible thing
To do
How would know?
When something goes wrong
They take the blame on him
How would you know?
If he has some faith in God
How would you know?
If he lives by God’s rules
Every single day
Because God is very restricted
With his rules
How would you know ?
If he prays to God
Every single night
Before he goes to bed
And it is God that answer
His prayer every single night
How would you know?
If he knows that is God
That made him with his
Holy hands
And he placed him
Here on earth to live
His life every single day
How would you know?
If he is sleeping in during
The morning
And wake up at 2:00 pm
How would you know?
If he is a good reverend
How would you know ?
If he preach the bible
To his congregation
Every Sunday morning
How would you know?
If he goes early to bed
To sleep
So he can get a proper sleep
How would you Know?
That he is like us
He doesn’t like the winter
Because that is too long
And also the days are shorter
How would you know?
That he is like us
He hates when the birds migrate
South for the winter
Also during the winter
It gets dark by 5:00pm
We all hate that
Because it is very depressing
How would you know ?
If he dress warm
When going out during the winter
Because if not he will freeze to death
How would you?
If he has good friends
That have respect for him
How would you know ?
If he doesn’t drink ,and doesn’t smoke
Because he would end up with
Lung cancer
Also he has been sober for 58 years
How would you know ?
If he looks after his health
Every single day
How would you know?
If he looks after his hygiene
By shaving first
His face with the disposable razor
And shaving cream
He has to do it slowly
Or he will cut his face
Also it is not easy to shave the
Old fashion way
When he finish shaving
He goes and have a shower
He rubs the soap bar
On his skin
And the soap bar
Removes the dirt
From his skin
Then he rinses
The soap from his body
Now he is going to wash
His hair with shampoo
Then he will have clean hair
Then he will dry his body
With a bath towel
Now he will dress himself into
His casual clothes
That he buys from the
Second hand store
Because it is cheaper
Also he doesn’t have much money
To live
How would you know?
If he knows that him
And his partner won’t live forever
Because they will die some day
Also God made life that way
God hopes that when the
Time for you and you partner
That you both will be ready to die
And God will send the angels from
Heaven to come down to the
Earth and bring you both
To heaven
Where you both will rest in peace
