Settle

He says he likes
confident girls
I cower modestly
in reply,
pull my hair in
front of my eyes
I am no better, I
think to myself
I like them strong
and silent but am
drawn to handsome
and will settle
for weak

  1. Ouch! That hurt for a number of reasons. One, that there was a time, I could have written that. Two, you are an amazing young woman and I hope you never settle for less.

    Settling leads to a downward spiral and the further down we go, the longer the route back and it is uphill!
