Perks of being of the female gender,
So many, it addles my brain.
Not being able to take a walk at night,
Just one of the very many.
Do everything in our power,
To make sure we don’t feel powerless,
But powerful, oh I haven’t felt that ever,
Definitely not enough to stroll at night.
Have to look behind my back at all times,
Remain alert, my ears perked for sounds,
The peace of the moonlit night,
Ruined by the chaos of the night.
So I admire the night from a distance,
Looking at the moon’s craters,
Trying to grasp tendrils of power…
