Poem: Lipstick Warrior

The day begins

And I just know

It's going to be

One of those days.

I dress myself

With extra care.

Trying hard

Not to look down.

A touch of red

Slick like blood

Reminds me

We only live once.

Transparent no longer

I'm more solid now.

I remember

That I'll never give up.

Just breathe.
