Without A Father

Without a father

Suddenly men define you

Only seeing your reflection in their armor

It’s never easy

Letting go of a dream 

Of what you’ve wanted but never had

It’s never easy 

Putting yourself first, when no man ever has

You deserve it, you have earned it

Love yourself

Trust yourself

It’s never easy
