Pure Thought

by Latorial Faison

I'm never my own woman
too many reasons
not to be
the world
discourages me
so I hibernate
in every season
until life decides
to give me
a reason
to express myself.
I am one woman
of one cynical time
with a pessimistically
made up mind
so get behind me
don't walk beside me
until I've occurred to you
like a pure thought.
