Over Simplified Personal Evolution

A strong memory I have

Is of wanting to wear a training bra

only to because my

best friend did.


A strong memory I have

Is of needing to shave

my pubic hair

only because it pleased a boyfriend.


A strong memory I have

Is of being swayed one way

only because that's what I felt

was required of me.


Now I'm strength because

I choose not to wear a bra.

Its how I feel free as a person.


Now I'm strength because

I choose not to shave anything.

Its how my body feels best.


Now I'm strength because

I don't need anyone to tell me how

to dress, how smooth and nubile to be,

how to be

Me.


This is an over simplification

of pretty much everything,

but my point is coming across.

Shift how you think, if its only

to please them.

Please. You.


There is nothing more

freeing and enlightening

and sexy and strong

than making my own decisions,

and that those decisions

are pleasing to me.


Wouldn't you say?
