    ENSLAVED FEMININTY



    She’s exhausted from the hurricane Her children left on the floor
    Hair matted and her feet soar
    Hands stained from grease popping
    From the oven range

    For about ten years ,
    The dull reflection in the mirror hasn’t changed
    Still the clean up woman and married maid
    But she continues to put her body on display
    She needed her bills paid today

    She’s emotionally weak from her man
    Sharing their bed with the trash in the streets
    She smells the sheets
    He showers the guilt
    She swallows her cries

    She figures,
    She’s comfortable now
    Never been pretty enough to be a beauty queen
    Not young enough to change
    Too tired to worry about being happy with her again
    And when it’s too much to bare,
    She turns to her children and stares….. She figures, it was all worth it!
