Red Lips

I wore it like a mask today

I was feeling inadequate

All my worries seemed to haunt me

However, those are loyal customers

my spirit needed air, so off I went

crossing river beds

fighting through mud to find the freshest air

the view was breath-taking

all the dangers were worth the risk for the view

my spirit rejoiced that I fought

for our peace and mind

on the journey back however, the ugly feeling returned

a new fight started

so yes, I wore red on my lips

made sure to not make haste

once each line was to perfection

I knew I had won

The paint gave me power

Gave me life

Like so many others who have worn the same mask

I saw life differently for once

They say real men wear pink

Well, I say real women wear red.
