In 2016, I look back on the photos I see. The photos of me, of 2014, of footloose and fancy free. Photos of me.
But it’s hard to believe what I see
a photo of me
When all I can see is a girl dressed in women’s clothing.
A caricature of a make-over,
a dress that clings to all the right(wrong) places
What I thought were the right places.
What a feeling. To look back and know that everything that you thought was right was more than wrong,
what you thought was a dream
was the worst possible nightmare,
of a girl of 21.
is a girl of soft-spoken 11.
A sheep in wolf’s clothing.
And you call me a woman.
