It’s time,
To wear that purple hat striped black and white,
Those long black silk pants
With green and pink hlab siv in the front and back.
A silver xauv on top of my black clothed shirt.
I realize
It won’t ever be the same between my parents and I.
I will be an outsider starting today.
I have chosen to begin my own journey,
And take my own route.
Refusing to cut ties of being
A daughter,
I wished to turn back time,
But unable
Because the outfit is already on.
