YOU AND THEM

You think you are invincible, impenetrable
With years of taming your soul to not soften;
Spine to not bend; heart to not melt
You think you have an uncrackable shell
You think you are equal to the other half of humankind
With all of life’s triumphs, tragedies, and trajectories, YOU
Work harder, Think better
Aim higher, Achieve greater
You wanted to be a human, not just a woman
With “don’ts” throughout your adventure and thunder
With thousand years of dark history making you shudder
With your best rate being 78 cents to a dollar
You kept racing; and chasing; and “not living”
You had a flag to carry for those without a voice
So you kept your eyes on the ball
So you acted like a robotic doll
So you lived in a pitch black hole
What you did not see coming
That sign of your closed window cracking
That sound of wind howling
That cry for life and joy returning
And right then, some unwelcome comet comes out of the sky
Penetrates your shell, rips your inside, shows you light outside
And shoots right out, done with its desire to discover and destroy
What you did not comprehend –
in your core
You are nothing but one
Dopamine driven Estrogen score
When you love, you pour
And there my friend, THEY win and reign
Because you let that one hypocrite comet enter your soul
Because its crocodile tears for your rights made you a fool

I may have posted it last year. Don’t quite remember.
