im living in organized chaos and im good with it...

eyes wide

posture composed

walk like you mean it

even though you feel exposed


head up

shoulders straight

don't talk back

don't crack like a plate


eyeliner thick

make-up strong

hide every scar

for however long


never falter

never show

be what they expect

never let them know


do not reveal

what they cannot see

hide behind a wall

made of pure sorority

i wrote this to describe the expectations some people have of women in society and to show the pressure forced upon younger generations.
