Womanhood

I started my life convinced

that I could be anything, do anything.

But then reality struck.

I would disappoint everyone if I didn’t spend an extraordinary amount of time

in the pursuit of being

“Pretty”

This was where my value lied.

 

My body bled in shock.

They said, “Welcome to Womanhood.”

 

I started building my fortress,

where no one could touch me.

Do, do, do

if I could just perform, if I could just achieve

they’ll see how much more there is to me.

Destined to never please.

Least of all myself.
