Ode To The Woman On The Wall: Never mind what they say. Pack away all the guilt. It’s the one on the wall. Who can say it like it is. The keeper of the truth.
I see you,
Dear sister on the wall.
On the fringe, on the perimeter.
A little too peppery,
A little peri-peri.
You fear going in
You fear the chatter and the noise
And of course, you have never had
The right dress or the perfect shoes.
You fear stepping out
Away from the wall
Hard to leave some loved faces
For the wide unknown.
Your spot on the wall
A mirror that sees all
The rare gift of perspective
Your only saving grace,
This little peri-peri.
Never mind what they say,
Pack away all the guilt,
It’s the one on the wall
Who can say it like it is,
The keeper of the truth.
Don’t try to fit in,
Don’t try to jump off,
You may be a lonely fly
But you see it all.
You crazy perimeter loving,
Too peppery for the world,
Woman on the wall.
