you didn't tell me
that life would strip
all of femininity
from me

you only told me
to be brave

you didn't tell me
that everyone would
look to me for

you only told me
to be strong

i don't want to go
kicking and screaming
into that dark night

but i don't want to take
all the people i love
on the journey
that i have to face
by myself

do i really understand
the sea
and ail it's telling me?

it goes out
revealing all the trash
that's underneath
its shimmering blueness

but it comes back again
reviving me for the road

all i have to do
is wait

and dream
