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.
