If you’re a woman,
You’ll have to be the Mother of invention, the Sultana of Self-Worth.
And I’ll tell you why:
Nobody can validate you better than YOU.
I just turned fifty-two years old, and GOD I love it.
I glory in this mid-life thing (most days, anyway) and here’s why:
Because every outside force you can imagine
Is going to keep changing.
The “new normal” is a revolving thing.
Having the “look” is nothing compared to owning your self-worth.
And the ways you are changing?
Be lady-like, we were always told.
At half a century and some change,
I feel emboldened, empowered, and not at all “small.”
You see, in our youths, we were told
To make ourselves small, so as not to be a bother.
To be selfless and only consider
Your feelings as afterthought.
