doormat2 Grandma was no doormat

She had three husbands

Husbands she gave three lives each

And the earth took one from each


Mother was a direct opposite

A doormat used by three

And taken by one who stepped harder

Through her journey of five lands

In nine moons apace

The three lands she had journeyed

Gave her three gifts

And her weak nature

Coupled with the irony of giving the world eight gifts

Weighed her down 

Here I am

Thinking of what I am

Certainly don’t want to feel the pain of being stepped on

Certainly don’t want to be the traveller of many lands

Certainly don’t want to be the traveller with no aid

I certainly am me

Oh ye creator of earth paths!

I scream and cry in pain of my path

You should have given me a machete

So I could clear any path I wanted

Paths are burdens immobile

And I feel the weight of immobility

Please help me if you hea

  2. Dearest Cecilia,

    Your intellect and words are your machete. No man will ever own you, use you, abuse you, and force you to live a life in which you have no interest. It can be so daunting to look around and feel overwhelmed and stuck but you have already won. Your words have escaped your world and they invite all to see and understand. The floodgates will open for you have chipped a hole through the dam and nothing can stop it now.

    is important so I thought I should share
