Description: to the women wiser than myself.
i realize this is a little rough, i wrote it quickly a while ago--fine tuned it a bit today. i'm not satisfied with it, but just wanted to post it for the idea. work in progress.
Learning from you -------------------------------------------
Who taught me,
That as a woman,
Of the freedom you represent?
And dykes. Why did I not want your words in my mouth?
Your importance was unfounded in by 34 A cup.
I knew it all
I could do it
Alone without the help
Of you, for I was a very different woman that would not make the same mistakes.
His body against mine makes me forget who I am.
Now I know
It is to
Lose to a man.
To feel empty when I am full of myself.
Our sins, for that’s
What they are now.
Breathing you in, I will not.
Depriving myself of this shallow “right” just to fall asleep at night, knowing
I was true
And my life
The vastness of being you will never reach me, because my heart is out of sight.
We as children and we are all children whether in the present or the previous, have an insatiable attitude and right to discover life on our own. The frailties of our nature don't readily afford us the ability to concede that something our parents told us could have been true.
I have a slight interpretation that you had been told something perhaps significant or insignificant and you discovered the epiphany of that said 'lesson' later and to your own detriment?
Having said what I have above I think it's important to fall every so often, (not to make a habit of it of course), so as to know how to stand on our own feet! For all the good intentions our parents provide and convey to us through our lives we essentially the center of our own lives.
It is with some regret that when we realise they were in fact right, we ask ourselves why didnt I just listen and save myself....?
For me it's a great poetic beginning and with pieces like this we often had the medium in which we can better convey and express what we can't sometimes towards those who mean more to us than we sometimes admit.
