Poem:Just Once.

20191013_184029

 

Just once…
_____________________

I want to be

More than a woman.
_____________________

A woman

Who is treated kindly,
_____________________

With elevated effort

And

Above average

Consideration.
_____________________

Just once…
_____________________

The initial idolatry

Should not be replaced by

‘Ugh, stop stressing me’.
_____________________

Because I dare to ask

For
_____________________

Quality over mediocrity,

Respect in reciprocity.
_____________________

Joy that is boundless and justified,

Is what I’m hoping to find,
_____________________

Just once.
