Linear

Sometimes when I really yearn for the future
I learn hard truths about the past.

The time went by so fast.

I thought I’d never bow to a man
Then I found one that humbles me.

I watched my mother dote on assholes.
I am constantly trying to get ahead

We don’t make the money we used to.
Lots of money lost to feeding my head.

So strong these days to resist the men’s gross gazing
Ready to stand tall and make them red.

I used to let them in my bed.
