Acceptance

Acceptance

01/08/15 | by Shareen [mail] | Categories: downtown girls

It has been a year
Of growth.
The pushing
Through soil
Is not delicate
For the
Tender sprout

The debutante arrives
Out of the
Discomfort
Of puberty.
White finally
Becomes her
Marriage
Into self acceptance.

I bid him adieu.
The kiss
Was lacking
And I’d spent
Too much on my
Nails and
Blow out and
finally
The affronting
Wax.
He wasn’t worth it.

If you would
not try
so hard
Making your
Discomfort
My seduction,
I might
Approach with
Willingness.
What you offer
In acceptance
Encourages.
If only
You would offer
It to yourself
In equal measure
