Reblog : I am Woman, lovelorn

In honor of International Women’s Day, I’m re-posting a prose poem I wrote a few years ago. As always, your thoughts and comments are welcomed below. I am woman. Hear me roar. That’s how the saying goes, right? And yet, you’ve never heard me roar, never so much as a peep or complaint. My mother taught me, “Don’t expect too much from the world, The world will only disappoint you. Don’t expect too much from the world. Then you’ll never be disappointed and no one can hurt you.” Such wise words, I always thought. Look at me now, I’m so happy. No expectations, no disappointments. Except, hello, I’m human.
