woman

So you’re the girl that didn’t cry wolf

Cause you’re a step before the fangs.

You’re the friend

The real

The raw

Unreal in your laugh

That isn’t like the others

But to them

You’re unreal.

Thus…

You are your own

Living in your world

In your mind

Of otherness.

And what if you gave yourself a chance

To see what the other side is like

For most girls

Almost all girls

That sit pretty

And leave their lips closed

And black sexy lingerie mornings

With soft hair and no mean curls.

And toss back a cute smile

When really you want to dance

You want to be

As you are

Without caution

Without the world telling you to be this or that

Or the other

That is only made okay

When Lady Gaga does it

When you are the girl

That is always the

Friend

The dare

Cause God forbid

You see the real

And are not ready for it.
