Women only

The how-to-dos are fixed

In childhood and by example,

Yet fun to challenge.

Why can’t I do it?

I can always do it.

I pay rent, i drive cars and motorbikes,

I have a good salary,

I have an opinion,

My opinion is loud.

Dress strong

So sleeping, I choose my dress
In the dark of the bedroom
As an armour for the day.
A sharp colour for subtle affirmations
And a sleek shape to slide through
Confrontation.

Mansplaining

Rested and conscious
I horizontally review the conversation
And its flaws hurt my brain.
Standing arrogant men
With heavier opinions
Suck up your time and words politely
Pushing you to the path of failure.

Unheard reality meeting

You opened the valve
With discretion and assertiveness
and your opinions were released and
Like a laser rainbow crossed the meeting room.
Everybody heard the reality you revealed
And agreed with their faces
Yet nobody picked the comment up
And your reality was dismissed.
