Off The Topic Thursdays/ Touch

When you grow up Being told that your job As a female Is to grow up and find A husband And get married A marriage to procreate The next generation Without the freedom To accept the feelings That someone can experience With the sense of touch Alex  

Little Me

Felt like a ghost In the school uniform Every time I tried To line up with the boys I got in trouble With the teacher I got gifted dolls and barbies Instead of the cars and trucks I wanted Which got me the message That I can’t show The pain that comes from within Alex

Growing

Everything alive Needs to grow Like in every cycle There is always a start Or a birth Each season brings with it Days that are sweet Like honey Other days make Your heart just aches However, with each day Comes a life lesson That will help you With your inner growth Alex
