Feminist

I woke up this morning, realizing that the shield I had created for myself & I became one.

I woke up this morning, to find myself confused by the ideology of my younger self’s views on relationships.

So fixated on wanting to build me and do me first, I’ve lost the ability to communicate with the opposite sex without drifting away.

If this what it means to be a feminist?

So on the extremities, that you are disgusted by the thought of a man approaching you.

So convinced that you can do it on your own, that you become unable to listen or be guided by the one.

Is this what it means to be a strong woman?

Bathe in a man repulsing potion in your early 20s to wake up in your late 30s craving a family and stability.

What does it mean to be a feminist?
