Shorts and a pink t-shirt
worn by young girl
Glittery sequins on shirt
At age five,
What does she have to rebel against?
Or is this empowerment?
A true rebel girl wouldn’t wear a sign.
She’d just be:
Old enough to know why
Old enough to understand, and
Old enough to pick out her own clothes.
I figured this was appropriate considering my review of Just Say Yes, written by Elizabeth Hayley, which was posted on http://www.pedometergeek.wordpress.com. More of my poems can be found in my poetry books: Three Breaths and Ohayo Haiku, which have been published by Drinian Press, LLC, and are available online from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other booksellers.
