“With a Bow”

I feel like no one will ever want me
I’m too open
too honest
too strong
I know freedom
so I expect freedom
from others
men want something new
one who can sing
one who does her makeup
and hair
one who has nice clothes
nice taste
one who cleans and cooks
who can bear children or have none
I feel like such a gift

I’m all alone
or am I

it’s not that man doesn’t want me
it’s that I’m wrapped in God’s arms so tight
I’m hidden

a gift
