Expectations

Willing!
supposed to be,
Mute
supposed to be
compliant
supposed to be
Sacrificing
supposed to be
Motherly.
-at least, what I AM supposed to be.
pure
I guess, supposed to be
I am not
what I am —-
[supposed to be]
if I am not this girl,
what can I be?

    I really don’t understand what sort of pleasure you get from being here, Ryan.

    Jayna: thanks for sharing your poem. It feels very heartfelt. Don’t forget that you can be whatever you need and want to be.
