A little poem I wrote last year in the midst of my most intense anger. I was a very livid human last year and I am thankful this blog is an outlet. I have held a lot of these writings in for a long time so, being able to release them has been an excellent way to practice self-care.


In a cosmic state

That I feel no one can relate

My life is just one big fake

I feel like a mistake

Regret and anger

Have taken the opposite of a hanger

They are out in the open

Embodied and unbroken

I regret being alive

I’m full of anger and drive

A drive to not be alive

A regret to trying to survive

When will life get better

When will shit stop flowing like butter

When will I feel like myself

When will this shit kill itself

My name is Sasha Adele Braden, a transgender woman, who is queer and living in freedom. I knew I was transgender at the age of five because my development just seemed off so I had an inclination something was very wrong. I was locked away because of shame and I decided that I was going to take my truth to the grave and never open up to anyone because I was full of fear. That all changed February 14, 2018, when it all came out. I’m free. I’m alive. I’m learning that life isn’t just eating, sleeping, having sex, and going to the bathroom but it is so much more! Learning that has been a blast! I am also co-managing a grassroots organization called, “REFLECT” and it is all about trans and nonbinary expression through community while being able to completely lean on allies. I am super stoked to be doing this and being a safe place for the queer community of Austin, TX. Look up my Facebook page “REFLECT” for more details. With all of that said, welcome to my life. I welcome all types of people and welcome all types of dialogue. So, drop a comment or two on a post every once In a while​ this blog is mainly just a way to let go of trauma from my past. Expressing it has helped me overcome things I thought I was never going to be able to overcome and I’m living in freedom for the first time in my life.
