different women, different era
one body image too thin -
one too heavy
"Rolling in the De..e...eep...."
success built on a broken heart...
aglitter Armani gown....baby bump
set a higher bar.....twitter..
this social phenomenon...
death threats to baby.... obscure unknown people..
why the hate?
..must be already hurting, but mustn't judge..
get off her back..no panic..no backlash..
now out and about...proud...gifted.....24 year old Adele...
only brings beauty to others...
same old prejudices
- people need not be ranked, categorized.
i love you Gloria Steinem
4 U show us the way
some women have 2 jobs and
...still don't have the courage?
...don't know yet that their previous party of self respect
left them first...
equal pay....now enacted!
so fly robin, fly!! up into the sky!
let seraphic wings carry you
to your truest love...
may you drink of earth's purest springs
- and sail far above all creation
dignified - on top of the world
singing the most honeyed melodious strain - into the gentle winds
with your newborn baby blue love..grow
life has just begun
For dversepoets.com this week I have to say I gambled on this. Unfamiliar with the culture of this poetry, it was a matter of just throwing it out there. If you are a fan of the low art/high art New York poetry style you might want to read some other entries.
